H.C. Anderson 
A Wedding at Home, on a Hot Day 
1965 (ca) 
Gelatin silver print 
14 x 11 in 
Charles Schwartz Ltd 
Pictured is a happy, newly married couple -- along with some interesting bits of marginalia. The fan used to cool off the sitters is clearly visible at right (as well as the floral-print-wearing woman holding it). And the bridecake rests on an imperfectly arranged doily. Such details, though they might have detracted from a the formality of the portrait at the time (indeed, the right margin would most certainly have been cropped by a mat or frame or Anderson himself) offer us an invaluable glimpse into the realities of life for the people of Greenville, MI. From a portfolio of 10 prints, printed in an edition of 10, posthumously from Anderson's original negatives by Laurent Girard. This image is # 3 of 10. Illustrated in "Separate But Equal," PublicAffairs: New York, 2002. p. 84. (Charles Schwartz)
