Favourite Things, Photographers

I caught the exhibition of the work of Guardian photographer Roger Bamber at Brighton Photography

After his release from a spell of drink-related incarceration in Ford Prison, the footballer George Best went on holiday to Mauritius with his girlfriend. A feature was planned on the soccer legend enjoying his freedom. On the first day, a cyclone struck, and Best retired to his room for that and the following four days, emerging only for meals. On the sixth and final day the sun shone in the nick of time, luring Best down to the beach for a brief kick-about with the soccer-mad local kids.

Roger Bamber now has his own website.
