Photos of Living History before Photographs

A posting from Thomas Pray to the Revlist drew me to Living History: A Photographic Study, a young blog by a young photography student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She comes from a family of eighteenth-century reenactors, and is sharing some of her own photography from living history experiences, and providing a forum for others to share theirs.

This thumbnail shows an image supplied to the blog by Larry Winkiewicz, Sr. Click on it for the entry that can supply the full-size photograph of Jake Brillhart on the fiddle.
