100 Heads: Head #27

This is another portrait inspired by a Wisconsin Death Trip photograph. You can see photos from the book here and here.

Oh Laurel, I just finished re-reading that book. I had forgotten that many of the strange newspaper items were from the town where I live and in the immediate area. Aren't those photos haunting? People lives hard lives. Your portrait catches the direct gaze of that young woman quite well.

Thanks for leaving a comment, Sherry. I am so glad to hear someone else loves the old photographs as well!

Very striking images, these ones based on the old photos. that gaze is a bit unnerving isn't it?
