Paul Stephenson OBE

Paul Stephenson‘s story and work is inspiring. In 1963 he led a boycott of the Bristol Omnibus Company after it was revealed they had banned the recruitment of black and asian drivers and conductors. Through his work the ban was overturned. His career has been based around the community and in 2009 he was awarded an OBE in recognition of this and I photographed Mr Stephenson for the Guardian soon after the announcement at his home in Henleaze. Bristol City Council has new opened an exhibition at the Record Office celebrating his life.
