Frederik from Gothenburg Sweden was a great guy we met in Galway whilst we were shooting a student documentary on the Aran Islands about the work and unemployment situation that existed there at the time (1992/3). My friend Conor with a classmate Sínead were the producers and directors, I was the DoP and Fred converted into his later ego Shane McGowan was along for moral support and an extra pair of hands. We were in February of that year the only visitors on Inís Oir the smallest of the three main islands and we stayed for almost a week. Great times. This photo was taken a few months later in Dublin in the photo studio of Colaíste Dhulaigh in Coolock.
