Precious Memories from Two Generations of Rolleiflex Shooters
By Brad Husick
My mother and father met when she was 13 years old. Using his Rolleiflex twin-reflex camera, my grandfather took lots of photos of her as she grew and eventually married my dad, whereupon my dad kept photographing her with his Rollei.
My father passed away three years ago. I inherited his collection of eleven-thousand 2.25×2.25 negatives, along with his father’s negatives. My mom is now almost 79 and I just selected the 100 best photos of her and created a book of them for her. Many of them she had never seen.
She says she looks at it three times a day and shows it to everyone who visits her.
Here is the entire book to browse:
The negatives were expertly scanned at 4000dpi by GoPhoto.com in California.
