The beauty of truth






















Portrait of Mrs Madelain, 8 days before her death.

She used to be a photographer, quite a pioneer in her time. We talked about photography. She posed for me on the veranda of the retirement home. Staring out to sea she seemed to be looking into the future.

Mrs Madelain was patient, understanding of course all the steps required to get the image, metering the light and so on. In her day things were done even more slowly.

There is beauty in truth and photography has the power to capture truth.

This image is dedicated to Mrs Madelain and all those that seek to show the beauty of truth in their photography.
