That’s what’s written on the cover of press negative box 18. It also says June-July 1946.
I believe this was somewhere at COP, and it is also possible more than one photographer was involved that day.
It’s all an exercise in grouping and angles. And fighting the California sun. Squinted eyes and stressed faces, not a great combination for good photography.
The key is to look for “open shade” and there was none in these images.
Next image is of three different young women in what appears to be the same environment.
The rest of the images are all singles, some photographed at the same day, with the last image possibly another location, another day.
The image above is made with a reflector or there was a flash bulb involved. There are no shadows in the face.
There were a total of 11 negatives in this box but one is not shown here as this negative was fogged up. Few of the images are copies, so Joel must have submitted the originals to an art department somewhere.
One more box with expired 1943 negatives, all photographed in 1947 in the Stockton Harbor and Lake McLeod.
