For many years Peter Mitchell photographed the 'Ghost Train Man', Francis Gavan. Gavan's ghost train appears throughout Peter's work, with Gavan himself acting as a strange sort of muse, a constant presence against an ever-shifting backdrop.
Francis Gavan died in 2019, more than 40 years after this photograph was taken.
