About The Artist:

Homer Page was a neighbor of Dorothea Lange and she encouraged him to pursue photography. She was also instrumental in advocating him for a Guggenheim Fellowship, which he received in 1949.

In early 1950 Page moved to New York city, where he continued to photograph his subjects. This subject was taken during this time.

At the time of Homer Page's death in 1985, few of his photos were in private hands. His work was not "re-discovered and re-evaluated" until his third wife brought the negatives out of storage in the mid-2000s.
