Stephen Clarke, also known as Grandpa, travelled the world for work and was an awesome photographer. When the photo resurfaced, Grandpa was asked about them. Unfortunately, Grandpa can't quite remember where all these great photos were taken. Scroll through the beautiful photography and if you recognise any place, let Grandpa know.
This is Grandpa, otherwise known as Stephen Clarke. He was great at so many things. One of those was being a Grandpa. He was a WWII Air Force navigator, a husband, a Dad and we also discovered he was a great photographer. He worked his way up in numerous management roles to be a Buyer at a small jewelry franchise in Australia called ‘Prouds Jewelers’. In this job he was lucky enough to go overseas a few times to visit suppliers. He'd take his trusty Voightlander camera on these trips and take photos along the way. Each time he returned home he'd give the family a slideshow of the photos. Then the slides were put in a box in the back of a cupboard.
A few years ago Grandpa had to go into a home. It’s such a sad horrible thing that happens to many of us but he needed full-time care. We all pitched in to help clean up his family home after he left. I was lucky enough to find the box of slides in the cupboard and have been talking about them ever since. I got the slides scanned and took them down to show him in the hope of some of those special Grandpa stories. And to give him more to talk about than catheter bags and who gave him a shower that day. He was happy to see them but he couldn’t remember where any of the locations were. He appreciated that I liked them but never really believed that the photos are something special. He never saw himself as a great Photographer. With everyone's help I’m hoping to prove that wrong.
