josh had been wanting to check out william christenberry’s work
at the hemphill fine arts gallery for a while now.
we had a little lunch date yesterday and finally ran over there to check it out.
christenberry is especially known for his snapshots
taken with the kodak brownie holiday camera back in the 70’s.
thirteen of this snapshots of the south in the 70’s were on display.
here’s some of the other work on display.
below are our three favorite snapshots. can you believe the coloring?
i read online that he developed most of his film over the counter
at local drugstores, which i think is awesome.
i can’t believe how vibrant the coloring
remains on these original vintage snapshots decades later.
they are beautiful.
