Great picture. Thanks a lot.
Hey There! I’m Lucy and I am Little Deluxe.
Little Deluxe is a collaboration between my Dad and I to share his unique vintage photography with the world. The best of his thousands of photos have been handpicked by him and me and made available through our Etsy shop.
Growing up I always knew my dad was pretty cool. Cool in an unassuming and modest way. He knew he was cool but being the incredibly shy person he is, this wasn’t really seen beyond his small group of friends and our family.
He grew up in the country, where creative talents and ambitions were not necessarily a top priority. Yet he pursed his interests, namely in music and photography. They were developed in relative isolation, without the internet, without a large group of like minded peers. I seriously cannot even imagine what it would have been like. To me, this gives a purity and uniqueness to his work. It is his and his only.
Without devaluing what is produced today, being a creative professional in the current landscape we are overwhelmed with ‘inspiration’. Media is everywhere, we know what everyone is doing and creating, we cannot escape. Over-saturation of art and design is a given. The context my Dad worked in was the opposite, and this is something I love. No Facebook, no Twitter, no Instagram, no blogs, no Pinterest. No internet!
I’m honoured to be able to share his work. I’m happy that there is now a platform that will allow me to easily promote his photography, something that he was never able to do. We will be working together to set up our Etsy shop, to distribute his photography taken mostly in the late 70′s and early 80′s.
