Martin, Bruce and Nina, No Flash, New York City, 2019

Meeting Martin Parr together with my mentor, friend, and part-time boss, Bruce Gilden, was an emotional moment for me. They both remind me of different sides of my late father, Peter John Griffee. Martin lives where my father was born, Bristol, and his pictures of the beaches in England remind me of my trips there as a child. I met Bruce in a workshop shortly before my father’s passing in 2012, and I remember dad telling me, not long before he went: “I wish I could have met him.”

“No flash, Simon?”

Here you go, Martin!
