I remember how agitated he was when I used to see him in Edinburgh much later, about the way that the press were not producing his book quite right and some photograph wasn’t quite in the right… and I had a certain sympathy for the poor people who were doing it because he was demanding in that kind of way but it was a demanding in the service of an ideal, not just because he wanted to, anything for himself. He didn’t strike one as a self-advocate or developing person in any way really like that. As I say, sometimes these little, tiny, childish vanities about some recognition of what he had done being secured but they were peripheral to his real passion to create something and open other people’s eyes and imaginations to it. I’m sure that’s so, certainly that’s what I experienced in him.
