[Photo Album]: English Countryside
England: [Circa 1920]. Near Fine. Hardcover. Oblong quarto. Measuring 13" x 10". String-tied black pebbled leather over paper boards. Contains 62 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 4" x 6" and 8" x 10", without captions. Near fine photo album with near fine photographs. A collection of amateur photography taken of the English countryside with the people in what appears to be clothing from the 1920s and visible billboard that places them in the East Sussex area of the country. The photographer used soft focus and matte paper reminiscent of the style of early 20th Century photographers such as Edward Steichen and Dorthea Lange. The photos concentrate on the landscape of the British country, with photos of old homes covered in ivy, romantic walkways, and stone bridges. The coast and small waterways are seen here as well as photos of creeks making their way through rock faces, and waves crashing on a rocky beach. A few of the images have human subjects, some posed, such as one of a girl in a bathing costume and swim cap on a rock, while others are candids of people working on a dock or walking down a road. The stonework of old churches is captured here as well as farm animals roaming in fields. A pleasing and artistic collection of images showing the natural beauty of the British country and the skills of an amateur photographer.
