As a child Gavin was locked away in a shed with 3 dogs until he ran away from home at 14. He kept dogs ever since and when he found Rolex locked and caged away he rescued him,a year later he rescued Spike from being drowned in a river. When his housing situation became uncertain and he was told after a breakup with a partner that he could move into a B&B without the dogs or take to the streets he chose Rolex and Spike and has been homeless for 9 months. Gavin is quiet,gentle and honest,his eyes shone and his dogs reflected this despite their huge size. We often complain about our past and blame it for some of our bad traits,to see and speak to Gavin who had no bitterness about him or hatred within and to see the love that poured from him for his companions ..I hope I did him justice when capturing this image.
