New England: 1960s-1970s. Two plastic albums, 10 ½ x 11 inches. Item #CAT0131
A lovingly arranged and annotated product of someone’s obsession with New England’s churches. Nearly all photos 3 ½ square. A few of the churches have multiple photos. Most photos are shot from a similar three quarters frontal view, though some are frontal. The repeated perspective shows a respect for the vernacular forms, though it is unclear if the photographer’s interests were architectural or historical in nature. The photographer travelled throughout New England, with the breakdown of churches as follows: 206 in Massachusetts, forty-six in Connecticut, forty-eight in Maine, eighty-six in New Hampshire, sixteen in Rhode Island and six in other states.
A fine collection, impeccably preserved in the original albums, which read “Memories” on the front.
