Not a real surprise to find more SJC artwork in the boxes. There seems to be some continuity as I did find three 1946 pieces duplicated in this box of negatives.
It’s a mix of 3D and 2D work, with the 2D work yielding a few names of students. Matter of figuring out who Joel is hanging out with.
Joel is playing with mirrors to give more dimension to the artwork.
Either Joel photographed three 1946 pieces that were left behind or 1946 negatives ended up in the 1947 box.
As stated before, the 2D Lettering and Logo work yields a few student names, so we should be able to track their graduation dates.
For Joel, this is class work, matter of keeping the skills up. All image in this box are well lit and have good angles for the 3D work, compared to some prior work we’ve seen in 1942. There’s progress.
More 1947 B&W negatives in the next blogpost before diving into more color work.

John Ball had a men’s clothing store on Pacific Avenue at Dorris Place.
Thanks again, I’ll have to check it out as there are a few clothing stores Joel photographed around that time.
