Louis Fleckenstein (American, 1866 - 1943)
41.3 x 34.3 cm (16 1/4 x 13 1/2 in.)
Using the newly invented automatic shutter camera and roll film that was more light-sensitive than earlier negative material, Louis Fleckenstein captured the fleeting joy being experienced by his children, who are observed here with charming spontaneity. The foreground shadows, the gentle arc of the tree at the upper right, and the darkened foliage of the trees at the upper left create a circular focus, highlighting the two smiling, jumping girls in their dynamic, airborne garments.
