Meet Pascal Whelan, a former movie stuntman who worked on some of Hollywood’s greatest movies, including Live and Let Die and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Photographer Kevin Griffin took these photos of Whelan’s life because it’s just so fascinating.

Firstly, Whalen grew up on this island in the 1940s and other families used to inhabit the island, too. He moved to Australia to become a stuntman, but after a friend of his was fatally injured during one of the shows, ‘Whelan abandoned his career and moved completely to the island’.

The island is located just off the coast of Ireland and Pascal Whelan pretty much lives there all alone. Except in the summer when the tide gets low – that’s when the island sees people walking or driving across to explore the wilderness of this incredible place.

No man is an island, except perhaps Pascal Whelan!
