W J Stokes joined the Half Plate Camera Club (as the PPC was then known) in 1954 and sixty years later his son, Bill, has just joined IC5. WJ was living in Glasgow in the 1950s and much of his photography from that time was inspired by the Scottish land and seascape. During a decade of membership in Circle 10 WJ ‘stickered’ 18 times from 43 folios.
Bill is currently working on archiving and preserving his father's collection of photographs which include not only his HPCC entries but also his other personal work along with family photographs. It promises to be a fascinating collection once it is complete.
