photographic memory

May 19, 2008

George Plemper was a teacher in South London for about five years in the 70’s, taking pictures of his students and the area he lived in, before leaving his profession not having made the changes he had wanted to, and for other personal reasons.

Luckily the internet came to the rescue, and his pictures have been saved from the plastic bags they lived in for the last three decades and given new life on his Flickr page. Amazingly some of his former students have gotten in touch after seeing their own images online. Read the story here and choose your favourite picture here. Mine is above.
