After taking his photos we all grabbed a drink at a board game cafe called Draughts for his interview. As soon as words started falling out of his mouth I was transfixed. Literally.
Up until now I've been thinking over how I could describe Hussain for this blog post and I ended up saying - screw it - say it how it is. I wish I'd have written something down the moment he left the room - as that's when the tears started falling and my admiration grew. This man is so open, honest and raw and thinking back to my younger years, I could only imagine how different my life may have been having someone like this to look up to. He's an inspiration to many out there and I feel completely honoured to have met him and taken his photographs.
