On the Anniversary of his passing, I wanted to show a series I had taken at the now infamous “Highland Rape” show at the V&A Museum in London 1995. I was a cocky lad, and with my camera under my coat I walked straight up to the tents and said I was was one of the dressers and waltz right in, randomly set my manual Nikon FM2  and started snapping away. It’s was such an adrenalin rush and I was completely oblivious to what I had experienced and the importance of what I had captured till years later.
