I had been meaning to document my Grandad's poetry since earlier this year but struggled to find time in-between travelling and moving to a new city. Since transitioning back into my freelance role I've had a lot more free time, so last weekend I travelled down to Blackpool and spent a few hours with my Grandad, Stan Frankland.
He's a simple man with simple pleasures; one of them being writing poetry. Over the past 25 years he's managed to write over 1,000 poems, some being published and some being read out on the radio.
My Grandad is easily the most important and influential male figure in my life, which is why I decided to shoot this short documentary in the first place. I also feel every ounce of creativity from my family, stems from my Grandad.
