Lee Broom: “These Binoculars hold a fond memory for me. It was my 14th birthday and my father took me to the Cotswolds out in the country for the day. My parents were separated and this was a birthday day out. When we passed this antique store, I saw these in the window and just fell in love with their elegance and also their clever functionality. My father bought them for me for my birthday gift. It was a very untypical gift for a boy of 14, for which my father never batted an eyelid. The binoculars sit on a shelf next to my desk in my studio, and as well as feeling like my father is looking over me, they very much signify his acceptance of who I was and who I am now.”
