A Portrait of my Nana in 1942
I mean, wow.
I don’t think I need to explain how good this is. What’s this development style called? The wash of colour of stunning.
I’ve never seen a portrait of my Nana like this. Something about it—maybe it’s her gaze or the curve of her back—has really struck me. I can’t find a date on it but by looking at other photos from the same time period, we’re guessing it was taken in 1942 when she was turning 21. Perhaps this portrait was done for her 21st?
It shall remain a mystery. A beautiful, intriguing mystery…
