…these images are what you would find. A cross-section of my brain is Old America, I’m sure of it.
Peach Harvesting in West Colorado
A Montana ranch
An Idaho town
Jumping rope in a small town
A destitute mother in a migrant farm worker camp in California
I just stumbled across these photos via Blackbird Letterpress who found them on The Daily Kos. They represent America, through the lense of a Kodachrome camera, before Pearl Harbor. The photographs, for me, are bittersweet – So clear, so beautiful yet represent depressed America, about to head into an incomprehensible war.
