Photographs by Frank Shepherd – circa 1962

A week or two ago I posted half a dozen photographs originally taken by my father in the early Sixties and recently altered by me – mainly by adding captions which overlay the imagery with resonant ideas and associations.

On the spur of the moment I have decided to post six more photographs not got at by me, which in my eyes at least are evocative images in their own right.  If narrative is a component of good art then these pictures have a story to tell.

I do wish, however, that when I scanned them I dusted them off first!  I suspect I will either have to rescan the lot or clean up the better ones on Gimp.   As I mentioned on my last post, pictures and photographs normally go on the Ionist Art Blog so I hope I am not setting too much of a precedent here – although these are probably more correctly considered as personal statements (hopefully not excessively boring ones!).
