Dr Gavin Francis has called his latest book Island Dreams: Mapping an Obsession.
Gavin will be talking about this book at Toppings bookshop, a week today [15 October 2020] .
I have met Gavin a number of times. For all his brilliance he is a most humble man. I recently dedicated a film to Gavin as he has met and written about John Berger:
“I would like to dedicate my latest film to you Gavin. This film has been in my mind for some years. It is about observing and not just seeing. I thought of you and, of course, John Berger, whose words feature in this short film.”
I am not as well travelled as Gavin Francis but my short films about Scottish islands can be found here.
