I started making these prints years ago as a project that celebrated notable landmarks, where the locations became the backdrop to the people wandering around in the foreground.
Occasionally I produce images that are commissioned from scratch. They’ll consist of, say, a favourite family holiday destination; friends and memories, pets and ancestors. I’ll be sent jpegs scanned from dusty albums and cut them out, colour them up, and instead of being buried in a dark dresser drawer, I’ll place them lovingly in a distant dreamland where they’ll have the time of their lives once more, and forever
Above: Fancy being on a beach in Ryde in 1953 with the Queen Mary returning from New York? This I can do,
Sometimes somebody will want to be included as part of a an existing print; to take their place amongst the original inhabitants, which is what they would have been doing anyway. Sara, a friend, has given me permission to show how it’s done. They do make striking images; and since they’re personal, they are strictly one-offs.
I’ll be happy to quote on a price for a print with friends and family, pets and heroes. Have a look and see where you might like to stay.
