Like the other images from earlier posts, this image was made in the late 40s early 50s. I don't believe the person who took the picture was thinking they were mimicking the American Gothic painting. Who knows? Maybe they were? Regardless. I presented this to my mother and she loved it. The copy now hangs in her living room.
Several years ago I picked up a No. 3 Buster Brown Box camera for a few bucks at an estate sale. It was made by the Ansco company and were mass produced in the early 1900s. The camera is very simple in design with an bulb setting and an auto shutter setting which is somewhere around 1/25th of a second. Today I decided to make a couple of images with it. I had a couple of extra sheets of paper that I use for printing left over to use as a negative.
