Meet Adam Green, Adam is an artist and in 1999/2000 he painted a portrait for Rik.
“It was so great to meet him on his farm and really surreal. I always remember my initial meeting. His smiling face and piercing eyes as I found him in the fields clearing some bracken.
I got to spend a couple of hours with him and I took lots of pictures. Three images of which made it into the portrait. He was so friendly and helpful. It was great fun.
I then went away and painted the picture, had it shipped down to Devon and then went and unpacked it for him.
I think he really liked it as he burst out laughing when he first saw it.”
Here are some of the wonderful unseen photographs Adam took of Rik that day.
