Ian lives alone, but surrounded by precious things and precious memories. This corner of his world is part gallery, part theatre. His collection of notable artists is beloved, and purchased selectively and seriously. His collection of period furniture is pristine and arranged with precision. In contrast, Ian’s flamboyant personality is manifest in his dress and his drink. He is an avid traveller and storyteller. He has been to more places than anyone, and recounts intimate details of them. I captured him in a magnanimous pose of pride and conviviality. Ian lives next door.
