Berlin before the wall 1959
My collection of photographs of Hameln contains my earliest work. A few were taken while I was still at school, and most were taken in Germany before I left the country in 1963. I have also included a few photographs taken in surrounding countries during that period.
These images are really important to me for several reasons. There is obviously the nostalgic aspect of remembering friends and scenes from my youth, and the fascination of glimpsing once again Europe as it was over 50 years ago. It is also a reminder of how fortunate I was to receive such a thorough introduction to photography. To read more about those early days of my professional career, here is a link to an extract from a lecture I gave entitled; "A photographers Tale"
