SHOOT: Salon @ the Weeksville 1930s Historic House

As the inaugural writer-in-residence at Weeksville Heritage Center, Zetta Elliot hosted a private salon entitled A Woman’s Place Is in the Home, in the 1930s historic house. The salon invited select women artists, intellectuals, and activists to join in conversation and have their portrait taken attired in clothes from the 1920s, 30s, or 40s. Zetta asked me to photograph the event in black & white as well as color. Here are some of my favorite images. See all of the photos here and here.
