King Cotton

Someone reminded me about the Cushman Archive at the University of Chicago. A peaen to Kodachrome. With lots of denim and, in Pima county and around Tucson, cotton. Cushman was an amateur photographer who amassed 14,000 slides and left them to the university. It's a fantastic resource.

Juan Lopez, leading a gang picking cotton 27 miles south of Tucson, January 1952.
Taken just a few days later, a group of children on the way to Sonoita, Sonora.
