Whilst dusting off folders full of negs and untangling hard drives I stumbled across this image from about 8 years ago. It s from a slightly mental family holiday in South Africa over Christmas. The light in Cape Town was a dream and I’d love to return and explore again.

This portrait is of a resident in the home where my great aunt was staying. I hardly even remember meeting her, which is upsetting. I can vaguely recall being shown around the building by a nurse and meeting a few residents on the way but it’s all a bit of a blur.

It saddens me as one of the joys of taking pictures is the memories of the moments before and after they are created. Perhaps I should go back…that would be nice…OAO
