“Living in Horsefield was a relief away from the urban stresses of Wolverhampton. It was not long until my interest in photography resurfaced; it seemed Horsefield was my inspiration for photography just like Sligo in Ireland was the inspiration for the poetry of W.B. Yeats. Which was quite ironic, as I grew up in the next county to Sligo, and Glencar in County Leitrim is included in one of my favourite poems by W.B. Yeats.”
