  1. We all looked like the guy in the bottom photograph in the ’70’s. The top picture with the dogs is nice; friedlander-ish.

  2. I enjoyed the photographs very much. It is not just that the photographs are old but that they capture the aesthetic zeitgeist of the time. I have lost all my negatives from that time period, but I have scanned my remaining tattered and beaten proofsheets to yeild some zeros and ones–cyberimages– that the nice people over at F Blog are showing

    Mr. Johnson’s photos show the more ragged America before cities became mini-theme parks, before everyone looked like movie stars. For those who weren’t there and then, perhaps you will have to go to Belarus or Eastern Europe to find something similar. Good job and thanks.
