I'm Getty Over It! / by Rebecca Tillett

I was recently invited to license a few of my great-grandparents' photos to the Getty Flickr collection and I'm thrilled mostly because I'm excited that others love these images as much as I do.

Last Fall I stumbled on a box full of hundreds of Kodachrome slides that belonged to my great-grandparents and committed months of my time to scanning and retouching most of them in the ultimate hopes of publishing a book to give to my family as Christmas gifts. I accomplished this monumental task and can without a doubt claim it to be one of my proudest achievements.

The book is available on Blurb and can be seen here.

In Sweetness and Love is 160 pages of absolutely stunning Kodachrome photographs taken in the mid 1950s to 1960s by my great-grandparents John and Mabel Moore accompanied by poignant quotes, lyrics, and excerpts. They spent as much time traveling as they did at home and locations captured include Wyoming, California, New Mexico, Hawaii, New York, Guam, Arizona, and the Philippines. My sincerest gratitude to them for their diligence in documenting their later years and thus providing me with such a vivid glimpse into the beautifully small but significant intricacies of their wonderful lives 60 years later.
