photoblog image Ade A Portrait

Ade A Portrait

This photo of my aunt was taking in 1977 by photographer Armet Francis. I carefully restored it and I'm quite pleased with the result. What do you think :)
He co-published Roots to Reckoning with Charlie Phillips and Neil Kenlock which was a photographic life story of their journeys finding their identities in the early black community in London. Their work has been exhibited in the
Museum of London amongst other places.
Its a fantastic book and is available to buy. p.s She is the front cover image :)

Its a very striking image of a very attractive lady, SAVO.

I have not seen the original, so cannot comment on the quality of your restoration efforts.
SAVO: I was too lazy to do a collage of both images after this. Thanks for dropping by smile

Have you thought about a collage, SAVO, where you could show the before and after? That would be most revealing, I'm sure. But congratulations on such a famous aunt. I assume the genes carried through to you?! smile
SAVO: I know Ginnie. Was too lazy for that extra work :p I am not sure about the genes bit actually lol. Thanks for kindly dropping by smile
