This is Harry. He was my oldest living relative and one hell of an interesting guy. I loved his stories about being on tank crew during the Battle of the Bulge. I’ve always been fascinated with the aged, listening to their stories and making their portraits. The only problem is that they tend to die on you while you’re still getting to know them. I was lucky enough to know this man my whole life.

He, his wife, and their kids had no idea why I wanted to take these photos. I’m glad they trusted me enough to do so. Maybe they understand now. Harry was my father’s cousin and probably his best friend. Sorry for you loss, dad, Neva, and Harry, Jr.

Harold Lambert. ?-3/29/16. Aged between 95-100 years. No one really knows.

P.S. I was going to stop doing this column. I won’t be stopping now…

These are the Beautiful People of NEPA. New faces are featured on Wednesdays.
