Description

This pictorial photgraph by P. Douglas Anderson was done in 1917. It won Honorable Mention: Emporium Photographic Salon, July 1921, San Francisco, Camera Craft, page 213.

It is Illustrated on page 66, Pictorial Photography in America, 1922 "Wanderers From Home"; 1917; Fifth Prize at the Second Annual American Photography Exhibition in Boston MA, April 1922. Discussed in the magazine American Photography Volume XVI, No 4. Entry number 5, page 208, illustrated page 217.

On page 214 the magazine states: “’Wanderers from Home’ by P Douglas Anderson, is one of a series by the maker from which the judges found it difficult to the select the most interesting. The landscape is arranged in a way which might by duplicated by most workers with little trouble. A tree overlooking a distant vista is not unusual. The placing of the tree is pleasing, but the introduction of the two boys at the correct spot is the most interesting part of the picture. The two figures are in themselves contrasting and hence make a most interesting center of interest.

Made in Santa Cruz with a 4 x 5 Sanderson camera fitted with a Verito lens of 9 inches’ focal length. The exposure, at 2:30 P.M. in August with bright sunlight, was 1-30 second using a three-times filter. The Standard Orthonon plate was developed on Artura Carbon Black E. Rough.”
