The bonus of updating your website is it forces you to look back over all your old photographs, and in the process you see how your style has evolved. With much of my earlier photography, all I can see are the faults, usually in composition and light, but there are a few that still capture my attention. This portrait of my niece with her newborn sister is one of them: the instant devotion, love, tenderness and protection still grab me. Well, that’s when I get over the fact that I cropped off her hands & fingers on the right! I took this over 15 years ago and was perhaps the birth of my constant endeavour ‘to capture the spirit’.
