Germany - Bielefeld - 1960s girl portrait.
A young blonde girl of approximately 3 years-old stands on a lawn looking delighted. She giggles with great mirth at something that pleases her - possibly the way her father has posed her as if she's a ballerina, or maybe because it is her birthday and her present is the blue dress she is showing off to the viewer. The girl holds out her arms while holding a special pair of sunglasses. It is the summer of 1967 and this is a housing estate for British soldiers stationed in Bielefeld, Germany still during the Cold War. The girl's father is a solder serving in the British Army and the they all live in a house nearby with other expat families. Kodachrome film has a wonderful magenta colour cast in mid-tones and where a small light-leak has affected the far right, reminiscent of the classic days of early photography when shifts in color gave a faded look.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
