Patrick Procktor by Ian Massey 2010

 

I have so much to thank Patrick for and he was a huge influence on me …sometimes not always for the good …but I loved him deeply as a friend and I hope I get to see him again one day.   He used to rib me mercilessly for being ambitious and he thought ambition was  tacky…  I was always arrogantly confident of my abilities a photographer and he would try to undermine me, teasing me oping to make me squirm but oddly when I ever I  doubted myself he would  chide me and say,  ”It’s  your destiny Nanny !”  as if he knew what was ahead.
