I’ve known Richard Vergette since I was a wayward student in the early 80’s gate crashing the Inter Arts course at Bretton Hall whilst studying Art History in Leicester. He is a thoroughly good sport and a gentleman to boot. As head of the students Union at Bretton he organised some of my first paid gigs.
Richard writs plays now and teaches we met at Queens Gardens to make this image.
David Bush got in touch with me about recreating a scene from a film, he wasn’t sure which film so we had a video call and I said well you look a lot like Alec Guiness so we settled on Obi-Wan Kenobi. Dave who is a costume designer and all round useful geezer ran his own costume up. Please note only two Matalan dressing gowns were harmed in the creation of this stunning costume. We did the shoot at the back of macro on St. Andrews Quay next to the Humber.
