Newly Discovered Photographer's Work
I had the opportunity to watch this last night and I liked it! it was an interesting slice of life from the 20s and of the black middle class. It was shocking to see all those plates in paper boxes that were rotting away under their house, which was a dirt floored crawl space. Amazing to see how well they lasted because they were glass. It was also very interesting to see their approach to getting the images with people in them identified by turning to the community with sets of 100 prints at a time on the kitchen table. Must have been very exciting when it all fell into place and linked up.
