Nathan, that is just beautiful! I think it's one of the best ones I've seen of your "Matt" drawings you've done (and that's saying something considering how good all of them are). Like Mac said, amazing! You're too critical on yourself, but I know you artists are like that. I've always wished I had a talent, but at least I can say I know a real live artist.

No.. but I see what you mean. Certificates of rank are special in my dojo. Our sensei does not sign or stamp any unti lthe student has earned them.

I have always been haunted by the famous black & white portrait by Dorothea Lange called Migrant Mother. I knew it was a depression-era picture and assumed it was of an Oklahoma "dust bowl" migrant. I also assumed that the woman in the picture was nameless and her future lost to the ages. I always wondered what became of her.

Recently, I stumbled across a small blurb in American History magazine which answered my questions. The woman did have a name: Florence Owens Thompson. At the time the picture was taken and published, she was nameless. It wasn't until decades later that Florence Thompson revealed her identity in a letter to a newspaper, prior to her death in 1983. According to her daughter, Katherine McIntosh (the little girl on her mom's right shoulder), the image motivated her family: "We all worked hard and we all had good jobs."

I did a little search on the internet and found this excellent article about the Migrant Mother: http://www.openphotographyforums.com...STONES_001.php. The article is too long to quote extensively, but it is definitely worth a read.

Interestingly, the author of the article is a photographer, and using modern technology, corrected some technical flaws in another photograph in the series (below). He argues, rather convincingly, that the famous photo, although powerful, was staged and therefore not entirely truthful in its depiction of reality. He argues that the picture below manages to "depict a truth about motherhood as old as humanity." I tend to agree with him.
