Control Panel; Hard Hats. Meadow Brook Coal Company, Lykens.
I was always really hesitant to use the handful of photographs I took of people while I was photographing, reluctant to indulge my teachers and peers desire to see the people that inhabit the coal region. The portraits I made, I always felt, weren’t right, weren’t quite good enough, didn’t fit in with the images I was working with. To this day, I look at this picture and I go “I took that?!”.
