The simplicity of a traditional incandescent lamp! It’s very strange to imagine that what now costs a few pence and is already technologically superseded by its “low energy” cousins, 100 years ago was still a new invention!

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
