Many photographers influenced me in college. Sally Mann was one of them. Her work has sat in the recesses of my mind for several decades. Interesting that my aesthetic appreciation has moved back to this style. (i.e. black and white and early photography methods) I’m trying to remember more. It’s like I have something to settle.

Portrait of Charles Goodman, date unknown. Photograph by Mosher, Charles Delevan.

I’m fond of this pic for how its framed. Maybe it was cropped in the darkroom this way. Portraits done with a square ratio, such as 6×6 from 120 medium format film, are nice. But this provides a little bit more information. Hmmm.
