Photographer's Note

Local farmer in the hill village of Monchique, Portugal.

This was taken in 1968 I believe, so it's a vintage effort. Unfortunately I can't remember his name, but we were staying nearby, and bought some produce from him. This is a semi-formal portrait: he certainly knew I was taking his picture, and was happy to pose for me (I'm glad he looks happy but unselfconscious), but he's in his everyday working clothes. If he'd had his way, he'd have changed into his Sunday Best!

Shot with a Yashica "J" 35mm rangefinder. Transparency scanned on a Nikon dedicated film scanner, and the digital file sepia toned in Photoshop. Interestingly no other work was needed on this 46 year-old image, apart from a touch of Nik Pre-sharpener, and the removal of a few dust marks.
