Disfarmer

For Pre Spring ’14, I took my inspiration from the American Studio Photographer, Mike Disfarmer. Disfarmer lived and worked in obscurity in a small town in rural Arkansas during the Great Depression, photographing the local townspeople – mostly laborers and farmers. It was only years later, after his death, that he became recognized as one of the best American portrait photographers to come out of the last century. What he documented in his photos serves not only as a record of how people looked and dressed in the 1930s and 40s in rural America, but captures a moment in time when the country was caught between two wars and trying to rebuild its identity.
