Seeing Dad

12th January 2017

Unraveling a subject is so much easier when they are a stranger. Dad and I started taking pictures of each other last year when I treated myself to the Wista. It has become an organic way to get to know each other a bit better and have some fun.

Last weekend my living room table became our darkroom as he loaded the reels onto a spool and mixed up the chemistry. The nostalgia of barely being able to peer over the trays in his garden darkroom seemed so recent. I’m looking forward to playing and experimenting more.


This other image is one I feel I may have posted but I saw it today and for some reason it just felt relevant. Maybe it was the snow as I walked home tonight but it evoked something present in me so I thought I’d ping it up.


More stories soon OAO x
