Grandpa And His Guitar

My grandpa, Charles Crawford, was 74 years old when I made this portrait of him. He is holding the guitar that his mother bought him for his 16th birthday. When he was young, grandpa and his friends played country music.

He still played his old guitar when I was a kid, but by the time I made this photograph, he had stopped playing it because the old instrument was starting to develop cracks. It was an inexpensive model; his family was poor back then, and it was what his mother could afford, but it wasn't made to last the more than 50 years that he used it. He loved it, though, and still remembered how happy he was when he got it!

Grandpa died in 2008, ten years after I made this portrait.

This was the very first photograph that I ever made using studio lighting, rather than natural light.

1998

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
