When the nipper was born the wife was always tired and wanting rest, and I was busy with my street pictures so we had a cleaner that came in. I don’t know how we would have coped without her, my wife would ask me to clean or tidy and I would be thinking about what I needed to get from Homebase or finding the perfect area to showcase my work.
In the old days it was only royalty or important people who had the money to have their photos taken – and my maid was important to me, she allowed me to keep the Mrs happy, keep the kids safe and also pursue my passion. So I drew a portrait of her. I think she was Polish or Indian or something.
