Images depicting African-American life in the rural South at the turn of the 20th Century. These stunning photos show one family’s life with portraits of children at play, men and women in varying dress, and in their home and yard. The children are also seen perched on fences and one shows a sweet childhood kiss. The family is seen in an ox-drawn wagon, another shows houses surrounded by great trees draped in Spanish moss, and another shows the group posed in front of their home. A woman with a headscarf and apron is posed in the yard with two puppies in her arms. An elderly man in seen posed on a tree stump with an ax, staring into the camera. The photographer’s eye beautifully frames the subjects in these skillful and arresting photos. A wonderful collection of cyanotypes featuring an African-American family at the turn of the century.
