Gordon McGowan - Speakers’ Corner

I used to be very shy as a child but that all changed after a spell in hospital to treat a burst eardrum condition. That was back in 1961. My father turned up in the ward with a cheap Russian camera and it changed my outlook completely. I started taking pictures of people and it helped me overcome my shyness.
