PORTRAITS IN WORDS

[Grandma Sophie]


[Grandpa Oscar]


Meet my Grandma
Sophie & Grandpa Oscar. They both came over from Jamaica (as newly weds) on the Empire Windrush that docked at Tilbury, England on 22nd June, 1948. Today, I got these original photographs blown up to A3 format to hang on my wall. They look sick! In my eyes, film will always reign supreme over digital photgraphy.
