These photographs form part of a project my father Peter Donnelly started in 1962, when he won The Daily Telegraph photographic competition with a unique set of images taken in and around Birmingham & The Black Country, England. The judges included David Bailey, one of Britain's best known fashion photographers, Emil Buhrur editor of the Swiss magazine Camera, Ian James editor of The Photography Year Book & George Rodger founder of Magnum Photographers Agency.
Real people, real trains, Real moments in time like the mongrel dog waiting patiently outside the pub for his master to finish his pint. All captured on a Pentakon F 35mm Camera using Kodachrome and Agfa 35mm film.
Decaying vistas, time-worn monuments, or simply sublime snapshots in time - this selection of imagery and verse is also history with a heart. This book represents the love and respect between father and son, created to honour my father’s plans after he passed away. The describing verses accompanying the pictures were added by Peter in his later years as he looked back in retrospect.
