Stepping Back

Milton Abbas, September 1957


OK, I'll admit I didn't take this shot. Actually, we don't know who did. My father, Dr Maxwell Noton, or Foss as I have called him since 1967, the man in his 20's positioned mid-frame, can't remember, although he suspects it was a self-timer job using a tripod. If that's the case, the picture has a remarkably spontaneous feel about it. I have to admit I love this picture, and not just because it’s of my family in the month after I was born, and the month before we emigrated to the USA. I reckon it's an iconic image, one that could stand as a symbol of England in the 50s, which is why I've decided to feature it here.
