In a series of photographs made over eight years, Julian Germain captured the quiet, contemplative existence of an old man living alone in a small house in a city on the south coast of England. Unfettered by the misplaced aspirations of the modern world, Charlie spent the last years of his life absorbed in his memories of his wife, his children, his love for flowers, music and the quotidian pleasures of the crossword, and his albums of his own photographs.Germain?s photographs of Charlie, his home and the things he owned are a beautiful, gentle portrait of a gentleman in his twilight years.Without ever trying or intending to, he showed me that the most important things in life cost nothing at all. He was my antidote to modern living. Julian Germain. Item #70
