Colorado Snow Capped Peak

Grandpa’s Photos is a website created by Dave Tomkins. It is filled with beautiful vintage photographs taken by his grandfather, Stephen Clarke. The project started out as Tomkins’s attempt to help jog his grandfather’s memory about the pictures he had taken earlier in his life but had no recollection of. But now that Clarke has passed on, it has turned into a form of tribute to his life. Tomkins plans to use the information gathered on the website to track down the exact same places his grandfather had been to, before traveling to them to capture them in their current state.

To commit fully to this project, which showcases 50 of his grandpa’s best photographs, Tomkins has quit his day job at an ad agency.
