lost portrait found
This picture, taken in Nazaré, Portugal in 1988, came to mind a couple of months back, and I’ve been looking for the negative ever since. Today I found it!
We were relaxing in a bar in town and sitting opposite this exceptional looking example of a local fisherman. By the language of raising the camera and indicating I’d like to grab a picture, the deal was settled, I got my picture and I think we bought him a cerveja gelada. At least I hope we did.
I still find it freaky that a picture taken all those years ago still lives as an image on film, and that revisiting it now can summon all manner of memories associated with the moments before and after the photograph was made.
