Forever in search of images that capture “a moment,” I love digging into boxes of old photographs at flea markets and antique shows. Last year at Brimfield, armed with an extra dose of patience, and a large dollop of perseverance, I dug deep into a big plastic storage bin, painstakingly thumbing through a mother lode of pictures. Then I saw her. A beautiful image of a horsewoman. I was smitten. Loved her look (I would so wear that outfit!) and her total vibe.
Sometimes I’ll have an old photograph framed, but more often, I’ll just tuck a special one into the frame of a mirror or mix it in with a group of leaning art.
Brimfield runs from Tuesday, May 10th until Sunday, May 15th. You may just spot me digging away!
