    Opinions please - Surrealistic Self-Portraits - from 50 years ago

    These were taken by my grandfather, Dr S.D.Jouhar, around 1959/1960.

    I would welcome any opinions.

    My grandfather Dr S.D.Jouhar FRPS FPSA said this in 1946....See www.sdjouhar.com for a retrospective of his work.

    A grandfather to be proud of, a grandfather to learn from.

    I started in photography at that time (1959/1960).

    Not so much an opinion as a lesson your grandfather just taught me.

    HAVE SOME FRICKIN FUN ALREADY!

    Because it looks like he loved to have fun with his film. A lesson we could all learn or re-learn as the case may be.
    Thank you very much for sharing that with us.
    Thank you.
