Artist's Description

This photograph is very special to me.

In my hand I hold my Grandfather’s 90 year old vintage Voigtlander Compur folding camera that he bought in Germany in the 1920’s and I’ve taken a photograph of my son through the tiny viewfinder. I cannot articulate the emotions this stirs in me.

I bet my grandfather never imagined that one day, in another century, his beloved camera would be used by his granddaughter (who he never knew) to photograph his great grandson.

I’m a sentimental fool…….!
