When in 2014, Dylan Scalet inherited a sizable collection of photos captured by his grandfather Jack Sharp, he didn’t expect much. It actually took him 6 years—and COVID-19 lockdown happening—to finally begin to digitize the film. What he discovered was a treasure trove of incredible photographs depicting street life in Europe more than half a century ago.
Jack Sharp (1928-1992), born in Harrold, Bedfordshire, UK. Moved to Geneva, Switzerland in 1955 to join CERN as an engineer and raise his family. Loved life, the outdoors and fully embraced anything he took interest in. Here are the works from his amateur photographer days circa 1950-1970.
