Stuart Pilkington - The Shot I Never Forgot - portrait of Tim Andrews sitting on the promenade in Brighton

Stuart Pilkington – The Shot I Never Forgot


At the time of contact, Stuart was in hospital, but kindly agreed to participate with the help of his Mum Linda, who said of this image:

Stuart has chosen this photograph from when he first met Tim Andrews in Brighton. Tim suffers from MS and wanted to meet Stuart because he is trying to get a number of photographers to take his portrait . Stuart and he got on very well together and spent an enjoyable couple of days. Stuart is in a wheelchair post stroke (2015). This left him with no use of his right side and no speech. However they managed to communicate really well.

More of Stuart’s work is available on his website:

Tim Andrew’s collaboartive project ‘Over the Hill’ can be seen here:
