Portrait Salon

Next week this image of Bob will be shown at the Royal Photographic Society's gallery as part of the 2019 Portrait Salon exhibition - this year edited by Peter Dench
Bob had his first heart attack in his early 20’s he has been living with heart failure for many years.
Now in his 70’s Bob has to manage his life carefully day to day to cope with the exhaustion of living with a little understood condition that affects a million people across the UK.
He spends 20mins in the morning taking his various pills to help with his HF and diabetes and the resulting conditions that domino.
He has chairs around the house to rest as he moves about, and uses a wheeled chair to move around the kitchen to cook.
Bob recently had to give up one of his passion of lawn bowling as he could not manage to walk from one end of the green to the other.
This campaign required spending time with people who have heart failure and capturing their daily lives.
It was such a pleasure to spend time with these amazing people and be given the opportunity to make images of their lives.
