Cotton Choppin' Hoes, 1936
Digital Color Reconstruction by Jordan J. Lloyd, 2015
---
This pain-stakingly colorized photograph is based on Carl Mydan’s original photograph, taken in June 1936.

Caption reads, "[Untitled photo, possibly related to: Typical view of store and cotton trader in small Arkansas town. This one made in Marianna, Arkansas]”

A cotton trader stands at the entrance of Greenhaw Brothers’ Cotton buyers. Whilst a seemingly innocuous photograph I chose for its composition and technical difficulties (the sky reflections and dirt being one of them), this image provides a glimpse into America’s long and troubled history tied to the production of this commodity, from a racial and economic perspective that carried through into the Great Depression.
