An Artful Moment: Russell Lee

For the sake of an aesthetically fruitful collaboration between eye and mind:

"Home along the bayou, Akers, Lousiana" 1938

Russell Lee (1903 – 1986) was an American photographer and photojournalist, and the picture above is a fine example of his splendid and historically important work. It is always good to view, ponder, and remember such things, since they involve our common humanity. Please contemplate the photographs below and allow them to expand the circle of your compassion.
