I wish I knew more about vintage clothing to be able to guess the age of the old portrait in this 1960s snapshot. Of course the irony is that the snapshot itself is now vintage. From a note on the frame, we know that the man is someone’s ‘Grand pa’ while the knees belong to
The cultural practice of photography is usually hidden – you see the snapshot that was taken not the photographer in the act of taking it. That’s why I love this 1966 find in which a woman is photographing two girls in the small front garden of a house in what looks like Mowbray, Cape Town.
