Throughout 1940, FSA photographer Russell Lee stayed in Pie Town, New Mexico, documenting everyday life and the community. The photographs, many of them in genuine colour, have become an iconic series of photographs. Lee spent quite a lot of time with the Caudills, and has many photos of 8-year-old Josie Caudill out playing in and around their home. I really liked the composition of this photograph; it was a great palate cleanser between more complicated images. The dress colour I sourced from a different girl with a very similar pattern in another genuine colour slide, also by Russell Lee. – Jordan J. Lloyd
