I spent a really enjoyable evening with Rolf Harris last Friday, at the Artique gallery in Windsor.
I’d previously heard that Rolf was a charming and very genuine person, and this proved to be a totally accurate description.
He really is a true character and naturally a wonderful artist. I must admit, prior to researching Rolf’s work, I wasn’t aware of the outstanding and atmospheric work that he produces! During the evening, around 200 people queued up to meet Rolf, which was amazing!
Among one of the guests to turn up unannounced was none other Timmy Mallett – the star of a cult program when I was growing up (Wacaday). Timmy was a great laugh and very genuine person. After shooting a few images of him and Rolf together, Timmy then proceeded to grab my camera and direct me next to Rolf to have my taken, which was a lovely gesture! And proved that he can also take a damn good picture!
Pictured below are a few images of Rolf, with a fan, with his art and the picture that Timmy took of Rolf and I.
