Calvin


"I'm lucky to be alive"

Calvin replied 'MY face?!' when I asked to photograph him. He was walking with his partner and beautiful 3 year old daughter. We talked a while, and I was very moved and astonished by what he'd been through over the last year

"I was attacked, stabbed in the leg. They tried to kill me. I landed in hospital and was in a coma for 3 weeks. Had operation, tracheotomy....was on life support. And my recovery now is mostly dealing with the impact, the shock. I'm not working right now. I was fine for a few months, but the shock of it hit me later.."

"...my daughter. Her birth was the highlight of my life. And she is still the highlight of my life"
