STEVE STILLS

Marjan

Marjan was my neighbour for a few years when I lived close to Victoria Park. Every day, a couple of times a day she’d walk her miniature schnauzers Blacky & Lucky.

It took a while before I plucked up the courage to ask if I could photograph her as for some reason I’d always been quite intimidated by her as she looks so impressive. She makes a lot of her own clothes, cuts her own hair and always looks immaculate, setting off her outfit with colour coordinated spectacles.

Her and her husband Ken had bought their house in the 80’s and actually planned to run a local shop there until the local council decided to block off the road. Their house is as unique and bespoke as Marjan’s outfits with Ken having carried out a lot of the work himself.

Sadly Ken passed away a few years ago but Marjan continues to brighten up the neighbourhood every day.
