Oh the joy of restorations…

I’ve now retouched hundreds of thousands of photos, but restorations hold a special place in my heart.  It’s different when you know the photo you have is the only version someone has.  It’s probably over 50 years old.  The person will never be able to reshoot it.  The person featured in the photograph may not even be alive.

I put extra work into restorations.  It just seems like something you should do out of respect for what that photo represents; in reverence for what it is.  I’ve gotten thank you letters for restorations… it’s hard to imagine graphics work more satisfying.
