Why the photographer chose one moment or another we will never know. His reasons were a part of his relationships, but they happened in his home, and it’s touching to think of it. The particular house from which we found these photos was from the late fifties. It’s amazing to consider that the people within lived through some of the most incredible times in our nation’s history: Vietnam & the Civil Rights movement, the desegregation of the South, the Cold War and the invention of the internet. And through good times and troubling times, this family obviously found the sweetness in life, enough so to want to document it.
