FOR the first 13 years of my life I lived in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. My family – the Champions - had a very long association with the country.
In recent times, I have spent a considerable amount of time scanning photographic negatives taken by my grandfather, Ivan Champion OBE, in the 1920s.
Over the past 95 years, these negatives remained in the bottom of suitcases and storage boxes and were not stored in ideal conditions.
I have tried over the past eight months to bring them back to their original condition using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
The most remarkable thing about them is that they were taken using a Kodak Box Brownie and the produced using river water in the wilds of New Guinea.
