Richard J. Arnold        USA

 

Rugged men

posing on rocks,

butchers standing proudly

before huge carcasse

 – Richard J Arnold’s

pictures of the people

of San Luis Obispo,

California,

radiate the bygone

American west.

 

But rather

than creating

authentic portraits,

he was an early

master of retouching

who ironed out

his subjects’

imperfections

– and the boulders

were fake.

 

Arnold

also photographed

California’s Asian,

Latino and black

communities,

a rare move

for the time.
