ian in ibizia spain on 35mm film
ian in ibizia spain c. 1985/86.

this was probably our first family vacation. i was stationed at raf lakenheath in the uk at the time. looking back, ibizia seems like such a random place to go. i guess it was where all the cool uk people liked to hang back then. maybe it still is.

ian was about one years old. the way his silhouette looked here caught my eye. against the mediterranean and the mountains in the background. as the sun was setting.

about thirty years later and 7,000 km away. also on film. i made this portrait for his graduation from akron law. you can tell he wasn’t thrilled about being photographed. i guess it runs in the family.
