Journalist Ken Griffiths took photos of his parents in their garden in 1973 and onward.

Year-after-year, this loving couple had their portrait shot outside their home, with them standing in the same location. We look on as the pair ages, their yard changes, and in the end, life changes dramatically.

Photographer Ken Griffiths captured this series of photographs for the Sunday Times. The series tells us the story of long-lived love, and in the end, the loneliness of loss.

Ken’s works are always give us a glimpse behind the scenes of people’s lives or entire communities, but this series is one of the most dramatic, giving us a real touch of the remorse of loss as we become engaged in the couple’s lives and the husband’s lonely stand in the final picture. 

"People like us, half of them think it will never work out. The other half believe in magic." Beginners (2010)

"I had learned early to assume something dark and lethal hidden at the heart of anything I loved. When I couldn’t find it, I responded, bewildered and wary, in the only way I knew how: by planting it there myself."
