Sophia (2018) after The Fisher Girl (1886) watercolour by Reginald Barber

When I first saw Reginald Barber's painting it took my breath away. Not just for the photographic quality of his exquisite watercolour, but also because it so beautifully demonstrates that photography, like painting, is art. The timelessness of the Fisher Girl's look reminded me of my daughter, whose photographic portrait I made in response.
