Why look at the past like this?

The Day in Its Color introduces readers to Charles Cushman’s extraordinary work, a recently unearthed archive of photographs, most shot on vivid, color-saturated Kodachrome stock. From 1938-1969, Cushman travelled constantly, shooting everything he encountered as he ventured from New York to New Orleans, Chicago to San Francisco, and everywhere in between. The result is a chronicle of an era almost never seen in color.

Eric Sandweiss, editor of The Day in Its Color, joins us in a presentation and discussion of Cushman’s work at the Southside Hub of Production (SHoP).
