Grandson Inherits His Grandfather’s Collection Of Unseen Street Photos Taken Over Half A Century Ago

Dylan Scalet herdou as fotos do avô em 2014. Uma coleção de Jack Sharp criada na década de 1950. São fotos de rua das situações mais variadas. Dylan começou a digitalizar as fotos durante a pandemia e agora compartilha com sites de notícia e criatividade. São imagens marcantes em preto e branco de uma Europa de mais de 50 anos atrás. O neto não conheceu o avô e a oportunidade de ver essas fotografias têm um apelo especial. Para ele ter esse acervo foi como conhecer um pouco da vida de Jack. São caixas e mais caixas repletas de fotos. Uma surpresa que tornava o processo tedioso de escanear as fotos menos cansativo. Já que ele ao mesmo tempo descobrindo e digitalizando cada fotografia. Dylan diz que não podia acreditar nas fotos que via e que se lembrou de Vivian Maier (a babá fotógrafa que tinha um grande acervo secreto que só foi descoberta muito depois). O neto percebeu a força dessas histórias visuais e decidiu encarar o desafio de digitalizar tudo. Foram mais de 5 mil negativos digitalizados e agora disponibilizados ao público. 

 

 

Sobre o avô – Jack Sharp era um engenheiro britânico que trabalhava na Suíça. Nas horas vagas ele fotografava pelas ruas. Um hobbie que ele manteve entre 1950 e 1970. Um apaixonado pela fotografia que pesquisava e estudava muito. Desde o funcionamento das câmeras até o estudo da luz e a revelação no laboratório. Jack usava uma câmera Agfa Super Silette Apotar 45mm f/:3.5 e uma Pentax K Auto-Takumar 55mm f/1.8. Boa parte dos cliques ocorria na Suíça. Embora o avô seja inglês, o neto e o resto da família nasceram na Suíça. As fotos foram feitas em Genebra, Lausanne e também em partes da França. Dylan também se apaixonou pela fotografia algo que veio do avô, passou para o pai até chegar ao neto que agora pode compartilhar esse legadoc da família com o mundo.
