THE FARMER TWINS STINESVILLE INDIANA" by JACK WELPOTT. 7 ½ x 9 ½- inch gelatin silver print, vintage 1958.
See "Driving to Stony Lonesome: Jack Welpott's Indiana Photographs, 1936 - 1950." From a note about the book:
"Internationally acclaimed photographer Jack Welpott grew up in southern Indiana, served in WWII, and returned to the Hoosier state to attend Indiana University. Unsure of his direction, he enrolled in a photography class and met the legendary photography instructor Henry Holmes Smith. Under his tutelage, Welpott thrived. He became enthralled with black-and-white photography as a fine art form, and never looked back. Driving to Stony Lonesome chronicles his years in Bloomington, Indiana. The 100+ photographs that make up the core of this gorgeous book are intense and personal, and include many fine examples of environmental portraiture of which Welpott was a master. Welpott, now in his middle 80s, provides personal anecdotes along with the photographs. He didn't just take art photographs--he captured the heart of his subjects. By getting to know the people he photographed and winning their confidence, he gained an understanding of his subjects that would not belie a camera. This strategy served him well, and the photographs in this book richly capture life in rural southern Indiana."
This is a beautiful vintage print, flush mounted on a board. There is a 1-inch small surface scratch to the right of the screen door latch. Welpott has written his name and his initials in marker on the verso.
