England - London - Ella's first year, Christmas granddad.
'Christmas Comes but once a Year ..' A grandfather holds his tired granddaughter at arms-length while watching a television prgramme at Christmas time. The baby girl is 5 months-old and yawns with a wide, open mouth while the elder relative pouts, looking grumpy. Both are seated on an armchair in the family home's living room. A decorated Christmas tree is seen in the far corner and the curtains behind are drawn. This is from a documentary series of pictures about the first year of the photographer's first child Ella. Accompanied by personal reflections and references from various nursery rhymes, this work describes his wife Lynda's journey from expectant to actual motherhood and for Ella - from new-born to one year-old.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
