Sometimes you meet people who, in their own way, make you want to follow them all day long, quietly photographing what they do. I met Paul Fisher as he came up to retirement from his role as the clock winder at Wells Cathedral. The Cathedral was being fitted with an automatic winder as Paul’s long climb up narrow steps was coming to an end. Paul’s day job is here, fixing and selling watches and clocks. Watching how precise and careful he works was incredible. He loves his job and, I bet, he’ll still be doing it into his retirement.
