Day 10 of “Vintage is Now” features a candid snapshot of a mother and son in the 1940’s. It was taken in the backyard on a sunny day. It is honest. There was no primping or posing. The subjects were immigrants who were grateful for everything.
This photo came from a “shoebox collection” of photos. Most families have a box or two of these. Sometimes they are a semi-glossy photo with cool deckled edges. Looking through a box of these is an adventure through the past.
The tone on tone white matting is simple. The matting design frames the image and draws your eye into the photo. We used a traditional frame that would have felt perfect in this home. The mom in the photo passed away in 1952, but we know that future generations will have a glimpse of a their family matriarch.
