Double celebration today – Perth and Kinross council saw the work I did last year featuring workers in a Walled Garden affected by mental illness and have asked me to photograph dance sessions with a number of people affected by learning difficulties and I’m getting paid !! This is exactly the field I want to work in.

I was also contacted today about the Walled Garden project ‘The most important people in the World:Honesty’ and the images will be displayed on the video array at the Perth Concert Hall in March 15th during the annual congress of Therapeutic gardening.

It feels great and working through the MA is giving me more confidence to believe in what I do.

    Well done! Great to have a found an area you clearly enjoy photographing. And is of public interest! Sounds like this is going to turn into a broad and full body of work for you.

    You better start believing in what you do. Everybody else does Graham..... I've got an interview at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art to study a 3 year course in film-making and photography so will have everything crossed!! Lorraine

    Excellent. And they know that you will photograph their project with full intention and dedication. Nothing feels better then being very interested and invested in something and someone finally taking a notice. Looking forward seeing your last project and this upcoming one!

    That's really brilliant - well done Graham. It's really great that someone who is inside the issue and cares about it is given this sort of role. Nice one
