The Long Way Home


Two by Two

I keep my vintage photos stacked neatly in a small black trunk that was the money box at our Halloween wedding. I am going through the process of arranging them in some kind of order. I shuffled through and made connections to see what I have been drawn to in saving and collecting: portraits, mainly women; clothing, because I’m obsessed with vintage;  black and white candids, because it’s so strange to see how photography evolved from the studio out into the world. 

The following are portraits I’ve found at flea markets, antique stores, yard sales and our own family archives.
