Tel pere tel fils

Tele Per Tele Fils was an exhibition in 2008 at Alliance Francais in Sydney. It combined my father's images of Paris in the late 50s and early 60s and mine taken in the 00s; some 50 years apart.

 

My father was a keen amateur. Technically minded, he made his own developers and got the best out of cameras and negatives as he could; but he rarely printed. On a visit in 2006, we looked through his photos and found similarities in shots, forming the genesis of this series.
