All images taken by Dawn Clark. Does not matter what era teenagers will embrace any technology given to them - sure my mother would have loved a iphone - wonder what gadget my grandchildren will use to take photos with.
Simon Sampson, lead singer of New Zealand band Delta - need to contact the guys and see if they can recall what the recording day was for.
Image taken from photo-scan on Epson stylus NX125 - camera I think was my cannon... not bad for a $100 printer did, a slight restore in photo-shop. I have also found the film from this day in the studio... just downloaded flexcolor so see if what results I get from negatives and slides at home.
Photograph of my mother, taken by her mother Rita Mills.
This is one of the first images captured by my grandmother that I have really taken the time to study.
There are so many elements within this image to take in. On a personal level its knowing that my grandmother more than likely made the Kilt my mother wears... as she did with most of my mothers clothes, she was a skilled seamstresses. My grandmother took great pride in her work knowing this I am truly fascinated by her choice of composition.
Time was taken here, time and care - the shadow so perfectly captured would have been by choice.
I did very little to correct this image... other than clean up a little damage from wear and tear.
My mother Dawn, was thirteen when she took this self-portrait - a burnt orange/red polkadot dress, handmade by her mother, my grandmother. The camera my mother used was also my grandmothers. When ever my mother sees this photo she always says...."I loved that dress"
