Christine Constantinescu 1944 – 2011
Looking through the family photographs put together for her Memorial Service last Friday, I realised the importance of photography simply as a memory.
As a photographer I’m always striving to produce work where the aesthetic is everything. The perfect light, a great composition, ‘the decisive moment’ and that feeling that you get when you just know you’ve got a great shot in the can.
Along the way it’s important to remember and always cherish the casual snapshot and its ability to capture and forever hold a moment in our lives.
It really doesn’t matter if the picture is taken on a dodgy compact, or if the framing is poor and the light wasn’t right -what really matters is the moment captured. the memories held, the places revisited and the people remembered.
Christine Constantinescu – it was an honour and a privilege to have known you.
I only wish it could have been for longer.
