'It’s your dads 80th Birthday, he proposes the idea of a ‘slide night’, you’re thinking great, here goes 2 hours of my life i’ll never get back. Instead, what unfolds is a collection of historic, rare and unique imagery from 1950′s America...’
Thats exaxtly what happened for Byron Bay based brand director and curator Craig Rochfort recently, he was blown away by what his father had documented as a young Australian visiting the United States for the first time in 1959. Craig is now in the midst of raising funds to restore archival photos and create a book documenting his fathers work, the G. G. Rochfort Image Archive.
