‘To You I Follow’
David Killeen, Self-Published
250 x 210mm
This series is based on a journey travelled by a couple to Switzerland in 1935. A photo album catalogues their whole trip whilst they visited the country. Each photograph is dated when it was taken and where it was taken but also includes a map of the route they took around Switzerland. The purpose of the trip was to return to those sites that were photographed and to the day it was photographed three quarters of a century ago.
