I usually send a small questionnaire for photographers participating on 591. The idea is to get to know the photographer a bit better. It is of course up to the photographer if he or she wants to answer the questions or just some of them.
Well, who am I then asking these questions? I have not answered them myself and it is probably a decent thing to do. So here are the answers you have been looking for.

A favourite photograph: I think it is a photo of me and Thomas, we are about five years old sitting on the floor playing with some Dinky Toys cars. But we are looking at the window. There is somebody looking at us from the outside - it is my father wearing a Santa Claus mask ( he was a great Santa Claus by the way ).
