PEOPLE PICTURE GALLERIES
I’m currently posting images from my archive of photos of people. As always with these archives, I’m trying to use a variety of approaches and responses to the subject. These photos are being posted singly, with full text.
To make viewing of these images easier for those with little time to spare, I’m also posting groups of these images in galleries with minimal titles. This is the 2nd gallery. Earlier galleries are here: 1 .
Clicking onto each image will open a larger version in a separate window: doing this often enhances the image.
11: Father and daughter: the vital connection between a baby’s gaze and a father’s smile; Bristol, 2009.
12: Luo people on a farm; Akala, western Kenya, 1979. Note the oil lamp, the drawings on the walls, the coverings on the chairs, tables and hanging pictures, and the daylight visible between the tops of the mud walls and the wood and thatch roof above. Another world, another way of life, and a thoroughly practical and effective, locally produced, place to live.
13: Dominant female, amongst wedding guests; near Bristol, 2011.
14: Woman with her eyes closed; Kegworth, Derby, 2007.
15: Human tragedy – every picture tells a story, but here the two words, suitably in pink, tell the whole story; Bristol, 2019.
16: At a party, talking to a waitress; Shere, Surrey, 2012.
17: At a wedding reception: smiles and laughter, and someone in a suit draping themselves drunkenly over someone else; near Bristol, 2011.
18: Shop window mannequin; Camborne, Cornwall, 2013.
19: A young friend; Bristol, 2014.
20: Ringing migrant birds at night, at Ngulia Lodge, Tsavo West National Park, Kenya; 1979. Birds extracted from the fine “mist” nets are in bags around the ringer’s waist. The bird is a small warbler that has flown south from eastern Europe – probably mainly by night – to spend the northern winter in sub-Saharan Africa.
