Sid


"I'd love to be a vocalist for a hard-core punk band"

Sid wasn't thrilled about being photographed, so I was very quick. But he was happy to talk.

"I'm a type 1 diabetic. Unfortunately I now have kidney failure and am on dialysis awaiting a kidney and pancreatic transplant. People often say 'but you look so well', but thing is, they don't see me when I'm not well as I'm not out and about then."

Being the mother of a young son who is type 1 diabetic made the conversation especially interesting and moving for me. I wished him well and hope it all works out for him.
