Reaching for the light and finding only darkness? Childhood memories are not always the Garden of Eden that some people imagine.
Wonderful, difficult image.

Beautiful Ollie.

There's still something of the small, vulnerable boy reaching out, and the sound of his grandfather staggering drunk, unable to give the love that a small boy needs.

Long live Jimmy !

A testimony to how children are stamped for life by the actions of their care givers. This is an oft repeated story I fear.

Jimmy always works, he's so photogenic. I like the use of space in the square format here.
