Photographer's Note

The second picture I'm considering here for my 'Questions of Faith' exhibition.

Ernest is a committed Christian - hailing originally from Sierra Leone he says that his faith saw him through the conflicts of that country - in happier times he was a TV actor in African soaps. He's a fine drummer and a very educated man. In this picture, I've just witnessed his skill and diplomacy with a group of drunken people, he controls the door of a local pub/nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights and for a daytime job he works for the local authority. He's a gentle giant of a doorman although he looks every bit the part of someone you wouldn't want to mess with......of course drink may cloud the mind in this respect....but he seems to handle it all with a smile.

To him faith is an essential part of his life.....he doesn't prosetylize but he does come alive and celebrate his beliefs the moment you mention them!

(Francis - man you shouldn't have sold all that Canon gear - this one prints beautifully at a large scale - you can see the stretch on this one - hand held in low light - it's fantastic tonally and sharp as a bothersome noise - although I sometimes like it - too late I guess!)
