Dick and Ginny, from Illinois, are the parents of some close friends. Dick and Ginny visit Australia to see their grandchildren every few years.
Ginny has been a teacher most of her life and I believe Dick still works as an accountant.
Not only was I keen to capture the grandparents for the sake of their children and grandchildren, naturally I wanted to capture the texture of their skin. The individual images I selected were chosen more for the texture and 'character lines', and the portrait together was to capture their relationship.
