In some small town in Quebec province…imagine the excitement, the boyish curiosity and anticipation to go out to be photographed (in your underwear!) by,,, Mister Bluefield!…
Samples of the first 10 sets, there are 849 photos in 46 sets. They come from The Days of Kodak, and represent some of the finest non-studio, natural & informal boy photography made outside of Europe. Later, Bluefield switched over to digital cameras and added many more photos, to a total of 1388. It was a rare privilege to be in his confidence to receive many photos directly from him.
I share these sets in the hopes you may appreciate from the photos the rapport Bluefield developed with these teen and preteen country boys. Oh course, he may have also paid them: boys always want money!
I have “switched gears.” Let me know if you want more.
