About the photographer and the technique:
Library of Congress collection:
Beautiful pictures. I first saw them when Biosphere used one of the (I think) Armenian ones on the cover of his "Departed Glories" album. https://open.spotify.com/album/6Z5pEHHjl6Patyu1NBIlj7?si=98T9sMvcSK6gdMPRAUjrqQ
I see blue berries and some other kind of red berry. Can any one tell what is in the middle?
Omg, the girl in the middle is the photograph used on the cover of a book I loved growing up – Dear America: A Coal Miner’s Bride, The Diary of Anetka Kaminska!
It’s so nice to know where the picture finally comes from (:
