Life photographer Robert Kelley took over 1,400 photographs when he visited John Voelker in 1961. I have a reproduction of this one on the wall in my office:
The light. The fog. The person. The place. I’ve often wondered how Mr. Kelley felt when he took that photograph.
Fifty years later I had a chance to take this picture with Mr. Voelker’s grandson as the model. It is one of my favorite photographs.
