EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from 1975, we are transported to the tranquil landing of Tregothnan in St Michael Penkivel, Cornwall. The image captures renowned Newquay photographer, Charles Woolf, as he sits pensively overlooking the river towards Malpas. By his side is a graceful lady who is believed to be his beloved wife, Phyllis. The photograph exudes a sense of serenity and contemplation as Woolf gazes out onto the calm waters. His presence emanates an aura of wisdom and experience that only comes with years spent capturing the beauty of Cornwall through his lens. The composition beautifully frames Woolf against a picturesque backdrop that showcases the natural splendor of Cornwall. The water transports us into a world where time seems to stand still, evoking feelings of tranquility and harmony. This remarkable snapshot also serves as a testament to Joyce Greenham's exceptional talent behind the camera. Through her lens, she skillfully captures not just an ordinary moment but rather freezes in time an entire atmosphere filled with emotions and stories waiting to be discovered. As we admire this extraordinary piece from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, let us appreciate its historical significance and artistic value while immersing ourselves in the rich tapestry of Cornish culture depicted within it - from water transport on ferries along Fal River to boats gently gliding across Tresillian River at Penkevil.
