Uncle Les.

 Uncle Les 1934-2013

The sad passing of my Uncle last week reminded me of how important a role photography plays in our memories of loved ones.

It's also worth mentioning that the photographic portrait played a huge role in photography's early beginnings as people feared that without the image of a loved one, their memories of that person would fade away. (A subject that formed the basis of my MA thesis).

I was glad to have been able to make this image whilst photographing my Uncles social club in 2009.
