GRANDDAD'S KOREAN WAR PHOTOS

PHOTOS FROM THE KOREAN WAR

Photo Restorations

I recently discovered several old negatives of photographs my granddad took during the Korean War. I developed them in my home studio then spent several hours restoring each image. If my estimation is correct, these were taken some time in late winter 1953:

For the stories behind the images, check out my project Johnny’s Korean War Letters at SCREAMS FROM THE TREES.

RESTORING 70-YEAR-OLD SLIDES & NEGATIVES

Photo Restorations

Here’s a few more restored images from 1952. I restored them from the original negatives which, after 70 years, were in bad shape. The story behind these images is detailed in a project I’ve called Johnny’s Korean War Letters, but the short version goes like this. My great-grandparents sent these images to my granddad while he was in the Korean War. The young woman in the bathing suit is his newly-married bride, my grandmom.

I was fortunate to be one of the official photographers for this year’s PASA Conference in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Here’s the highlights.

Wild Fox Farm - Barto, Pennsylvania

WILD FOX PROVISIONS

Travels

Last week I travelled across Pennsylvania on business for Mission Lago Farms. One of my many stops was at Wild Fox Provisions in Barto.

My friend and business partner, Ethan Brown, consulted with Wild Fox Provisions a few years ago when owner Ben Davies was getting started in the hemp game. Since then they’ve worked together on several projects and have become trusted friends in the industry.

Ben and his young family have deep roots in Pennsylvania soil. They manage their sustainable USDA Certified organic farm growing a variety of produce, including hemp. After Ben’s wife served us fresh pork sausage from the pigs raised on their land along with a salad grown on their farm, we took a walk around the property.

While discussing best practices for organic farming, we discovered that Ben and I are fellow Naropians. After briefly discussing the next socio-cultural revolution (think “enlightened farmers”) and Kerouac and religion, we brought it all back to the soil.

Accompanying us was Brian, the leader of Ben’s hemp team. He’s the guy in the orange headgear. A veteran from Afghanistan and graduate of Rodale Institute’s Organic Farming Program, Brian brings a whole nother level of passion to Wild Fox Provisions. From seed to flower, from tinctures to hempcrete, it was interesting listening to Brian and Ethan get deep into plant science.

Here’s a few shots from our visit.
