My Grandfather Pat Gwynne left a huge archive of photographic material when he died in 1996. I've been creating a digital archive of his work.
The work has generated great interest and has been exhibited at The Jerwood as part of the Photocopy Club "Family Politics" show and a selection of his photographs were in "Seaside Photographed" at Turner Contemporary in 2019.
His work is primarily of his family on holiday and at home. Like many amateur photographers he documented family occasions. His work resonates for many people because it really speaks of a time and place but he also has profound abilities to frame his work in interesting and unusual ways.
