I found these two shots on the end of a roll of film that I was scanning, I’d completely forgotten about them.
When I first met Scott, a couple of years ago, he asked me what I liked doing, I told him I liked taking photos. Scott replied, “That’s good, you’re a visionary…it’s good to be a visionary”.
I only spent a relatively short amount of time around Scott, but in that time I did learn a lot from him and most of what he said changed me, for the better. I last saw him properly toward the end of last year, in the back of my camper van on Ballaugh Beach car park. Five of us sat for hours, talking. I think Scott was the visionary.
Whatever it was he was looking for, he hadn’t found, or perhaps he had? At the end of April 2012, Scott took his own life.
