Artist's Description

Featured In:
-Nostalgic Art And Photography
-Layered With Texture

My father had an uncle whose hobby was photography and when Dad was 14, his uncle began to teach him how to develop photos in the bathroom that served as their makeshift darkroom.

By the time I was born, he had really become quite a good photographer and my childhood and teen years are filled with memories of seeing Dad with his camera or the smells of the chemicals in the darkroom he built in our basement.

During the 1950’s he used this Rolleiflex. He had other cameras later and copious amounts of equipment but it’s always this camera I think of when I remember my father’s love of photography…..probably because he was busy sticking it in my face from the moment I was born! :-)

On the leather case you can see the silver oval. At that point in his life, Dad was a photo engraver so he had the tools to engrave his initials on that oval.

The light meter in the foreground is one he used for years. When he wasn’t sticking that in my face or my brother’s it was always fastened to his belt.

Oh….the girl in the picture is me. That was when I was three and I was holding the leather camera case and ‘taking pictures’ just like my Dad….who is, of course, the fellow on the left.
