I had the pleasure to photograph Alan Hescott, children's tv writer and BAFTA winner.
I first met Alan when he directed "The Love of Don Perlimplín and Belisa in the Garden" by Lorca, for our exhibition 'Muerto de Amor' in October 2010.
I saw him lost in thought many times and imagined painting his portrait trying to capture this moment. He very kindly agreed to have his pictures taken and here's the result.
When Alan writes his children's stories he keeps an object, often a teddy bear, that reminds him that he needs to be in a child's frame of mind!
