Mikhail Gorbachev in Aberdeen

Many years ago, back in December 1993 I was fortunate enough to photograph former Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev in Aberdeen, Scotland, as he came, accompanied by his wife Raisa, to be awarded the Keys To the City. Yesterday evening I was saddened to hear that he has passed away in Moscow aged 91-years.

My photographic negatives from that coverage, along with my press pass now reside at University of St Andrews who recently acquired the work of the first 32-years of my career, safe guarding them and making them accessible for research and studies.
