Samuel E Harper: “JUST FIVE KIDS.”


Samuel E Harper

"Once Upon a Time They Were Just 5 Kids.| Five kids hanging over a railing on a Sunday afternoon. On the back porch of a frame house in Detroit. I took the photo, back in the 60s. But I lost track of these kids long ago. Where are they now? Do they have their own kids? Grandkids? Are they still able to enjoy a moment in time, full of spontaneous laughter, like they did when they were young? It would be fun to see them 50 years later. But at least they are captured as a print the way they were that carefree Sunday, just being kids. Once upon a time, were't we all?
