    Simply beautiful. Could almost be a modern fashion shoot.

  • Ruth de Wynter

    It’s just as Sarah said - the beach pictures and Christina’s demeanour look so modern. Amazing!

    I think we have almost become programmed to thinking of the past in black and white. There is something quite moving about seeing it in colour as the shots turn from static artifacts into something very immediate and tangible, wonderful…….
