An excerpt from our interview with photographer William Giles.

How did you get started in photography? 

” It started when I was around three or four, the memory is very clear.  My father was a physician in South Africa and had just received one of the first X-ray machines in the country.  He didn’t know how it would work, so he gathered all of my toys and put them in a suitcase and x-rayed it.  I remember I was very upset at first and started to cry.  Then he took me into the darkroom where he developed the X-rays.  It was like magic to see my teddy bears and toys inside the suitcase on those pieces of film, as if they where in a different dimension, and I have been in love and in the dark ever since.”  William Giles as told to Rfotofolio.
