Oswald Pike

From awkward rock legends to pensioners with bed sores, that's the way we roll at The James Clarke Photography Blog.

This is Oswald Pike of Worthing, West Sussex who I shot for The Daily Mail. He suffered from a horrific 6cm deep bed sore he got from a short stay in his local hospital that resulted in over a year's treatment that is still ongoing. He also had a particularly grim story about being left in a toilet for two and a half hours. Although he has trouble moving around and uses walking poles to get around his flat, he was a happy soul who regaled me with stories of previous work with Burberry and travel in The Congo. He was also keen to tell me about his new girlfriend. Good to meet you Ossie and good luck with everything.
