EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken by Russell Lee in 1937, transports us back to a simpler time when farm children found joy in the simplest of pleasures. In this image, we see a group of youngsters playing on a homemade merry-go-round amidst an idyllic rural setting. Their carefree expressions and laughter are infectious, reminding us of the innocence and resilience that can be found even in times of hardship. The scene captures the essence of American rural life during the early 20th century - a time marked by poverty and struggle due to the Great Depression. Yet, despite their circumstances, these children find solace and happiness in each other's company. The worn-out fields surrounding them serve as a reminder of their family's livelihood tied to farming. Lee's composition beautifully portrays the sense of community and togetherness that was prevalent during this era. As they spin around on their makeshift carousel wheel, these farm children create memories that will last a lifetime. Their playtime becomes an escape from daily hardships while exemplifying the resilience ingrained within them. This photograph is not only an exquisite piece capturing a moment frozen in time but also serves as historical documentation reflecting America's pastime during one of its most challenging periods. It offers viewers an opportunity to reflect upon our own lives today while appreciating the simplicity and beauty found within everyday moments shared with loved ones.
