It seems such an unassuming building tucked behind a small parade of shops but, its importance to me is beyond measure. It’s a building that I frequented regularly as a child. It’s the place I had an epiphany that put me on the path I continue to tread today.
I remember the event clearly. Back then the building housed the library. I was sitting on the floor researching a career in journalism. In one of the books I chanced on a chapter about photography. That was it. In that moment, in that building, my future identity as a photographer was set in motion.
Thank you Balsall Common Library!
