For My Father
I made a book last year - a selection of work from 2016-2021 and dedicated it to my father who really was (and continues to be) a great influence. I remember coming home from work and my Mother handing me any bits of post and my eyes would light up if the chunky padded envelope had arrived, containing the bright green box of 36 Fujichrome slides. I had bough a cheap lightbox which displayed the full roll of slides in six rows of six, at a 45 degree angle, a little amphitheatre for my work. On one such day, I remember being so excited to show my Dad the display - 36 eye popping shots of double yellow lines - all yellow lines.
He looked at them in silence, puffed on his pipe, smiled and said he thought they were great - very colourful. So began a long romance with yellow lines and while I like to think that I have progressed a bit, some might not quite agree.....
