In loving memory of my good friend Andree Peel
My good friend Andree, who died this year, aged 104. She not only survived two concentration camps but came out of that experience with a sense of humour and a positivity that you rarely find in anyone. She spent her whole life selflessly helping others. She was 101 when we did these two impromptu photo shoots and she loved posing for the camera. She told me that the first one was the best picture anyone had ever taken of her. The rest are from the second shoot we did together. After a while she started looking for props. First she picked up a book…..then she grabbed the photo of her late husband John but as she started thinking about him, she started to cry. I put the camera away.. out of respect for the most inspirational woman I’d ever met.
