I’ve been privileged to work with adults here in Perth who have learning difficulties in a dance class setting.
The images are not for general release but Perth and Kinross council who commissioned the work had 15 A1 images printed on foam board for display tonight and are putting together a booklet containing further images.

Bob shown above with dancer Ruth very kindly agreed for me to use the photographs I’d taken of him. I felt suddenly very emotional as I got back to the car. In this photograph Bob is holding his head still while looking directly into the camera and the determination, effort and intelligence can be seen in his eyes.  I can’t recall anyone having such an effect on me in such a short time. The whole shoot lasted just fifteen minutes.
