Soft rays of sun surge via the evergreen boughs, and just a look is enough to thrill photographer Tom Jacquemin and for him every picture is a memory, it is a time capsule of history, place and emotion. Sixty-nine year old Tom has been tinkering with different cameras for the past fifty five years. His love with film begun in the year 1957 at the Leland Jr. High in Bethesda when Jacquemin took a darkroom photography class. Film as well as other equipments were very expensive, but Tom’s father gave him a new camera anyway, helping his son’s new love. His hobby evolved further when he turned into a photographer for hisnewspaper and yearbook of high school.
But tom did not selected photography as his career. Instead, tom took an elementary education degree as well as taught in southern Oregon for 9 long years. Eventually, he turned to counseling that he practiced for twenty one years in Sherwood elementary as well as middle schools.
That time photography took a backseat, but Tom never let go of his camera. When tom retired in the late 1990s, he started selling his photography work at the farmers markets. Tom told that when someone would come look at his snaps photos, he would ask them if they really wanted to listen to the story why he took it. This allowed him to share some of his story and for them to tell him part of theirs, if they wanted.
