EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the historic studio of Kirk & Sons in Cowes, Isle of Wight, during the summer of 1935. Renowned as Photographers by Royal Appointment to King George V, this esteemed establishment was a hub for artistic excellence. The focal point of this image is believed to be Edgar Kirk, son of the pioneering photographer William Umpleby Kirk. The scene showcases an intimate glimpse into the world behind the lens. Edgar sits comfortably in a chair amidst an array of carefully curated furniture and decor. The room exudes timeless elegance with its rich panelling and exquisite carpeting that adds warmth to the space. A skylight bathes him in soft natural light while a strategically placed screen provides privacy from prying eyes. Surrounded by lush greenery and potted plants, it is evident that nature played an integral role in inspiring their craft. A table nearby holds various photography equipment, hinting at their dedication to capturing moments frozen in time. This photograph not only captures a moment but also encapsulates an entire era - the thirties - where innovation met tradition. It serves as a testament to Kirk & Sons' commitment to pushing boundaries within their field while upholding artistic integrity.
