My world is different from a lot of people’s. I see things in different areas that most people don’t visit. I found this because I was lost and looking for a way back to somewhere I knew, These clothes hanging on the line, called out to me like a Walker Evans picture that I had to capture it. I drove by and said to myself: Self drive back and take that shot, why ?? For no apparent reason other than I can.
I began to think about the fact that some folks don’t have driers or can’t afford the electricity, and these folks live right in my backyard and use a Clothes Line.
I used film processing and black and white to make it feel right, old that is, anyway who would believe some people can’t afford electric.
