I restore Photographs in Adelaide and
often work with photographs that are 100 years plus.
These photographs were taken at a time where photography was evolving
and I love to work with them.
To create a photograph a 100 years ago, wasn’t just a casual event.
The photographer, wether he or she be a professional or hobbyist,
took this craft very seriously. It was a time where ‘quality’ out weighed quantity.
The taking of a photograph was a serious matter and the photographer spent his
or her time creating a quality rendition and the expressions on the faces of the people
in those photographs often didn’t smile.
The technology was new and the field of photography specialised.
The ‘depth of field’, ‘focus’ and clarity’ of a photograph never ceases to amaze me.
