I SAW HER STANDING THERE

 

"I Saw Her Standing There" - the autobiography. Dozens of letters boxed away in attics, cellars and garden sheds have now been exposed to daylight for the first time since 1979 revealing a very Bohemian love story when the world was younger and I fell in love with a girl from a distant shore. Two rebel hearts that collided in a continental doorway forty years ago. The story of a time when it was still cool to be children of the revolution, a time when there was a whole lot of love, other stuff and rock and roll.

GEMMA GALGANI

Gemma Galgani was the first saint that lived in the 20th century who lived a life hidden in relative obscurity but eventually touched the lives of many. Gemma's story is supernatural and mystical but all of the events were witnessed and recorded at the time. I was fortunate to be given personal research access to Gemma's house and belongings in the beautiful setting of the historical walled and jasmine infused city of Lucca in Italy's Tuscany.

ROLL AWAY THE STONE

My early experiences as a forensic photographer in Liverpool in the 1970s & 1980s allowed me to become a witness to some of the most disturbing and horrific scenes that a human body can suffer. The subject matter is stark, abrasive and thoughtfully uncomfortable. We are ordinary people living in extraordinary and often threatening times and the journey towards crucifixion is by definition harrowing; it is a pilgrimage of penance but also a passage to redemption, forgiveness and to the light of hope in a darkened world.
