About the Book
About 50 years ago, my mother went on holiday with my grandmother to Switzerland. This book contains 50 colour photographs from that trip, which have been scanned from the original glass-mounted transparencies and the faded colour restored to be as close as possible to the orignals. As well as a capturing treasured family memories, they provide a fascinating historical record of Switzerland in the 1950s.
My images are mainly "scapes" of one sort or another - landscapes, seascapes, cloudscapes and cityscapes. I try to minimise the amount of digital enhancement done in post-processing, trying instead to achieve the desired effects through the lens, using filters where necessary. What you see on the page is what I saw through the viewfinder.
