David from Peckham (not David Beckham). Piccadilly Circus, London.

David from Peckham (not David Beckham). Piccadilly Circus, London.

I spent a few days in London this week (as you may have guessed already), so I’ll be posting a lot of photo’s from London over the next few weeks. This is also because my work in Glasgow ended at the beginning of November and, although I love living in rural south-west Scotland, I don’t find it very inspiring photographically.

Anyway, the guy in the photo is David from Peckham – I chatted to him for about 15 minutes one night at Piccadilly Circus. He was an amateur boxer in Nigeria (very good apparently) who was shot in the head by kids hired by a rival boxer. He lost his right eye in the shooting and now campaigns against gun violence.
