Searching for the Seventies

The Denver Post’s Captured blog has a great collection of images from the Documerica project of the 1970s. Prepare for a flashback to my youth … only my early images were nowhere near as nice as these.

Pay attention to both the subject matter and the way the images are composed – there’s more here than a primary subject, this is a great example of documentary photography that transcends the individual moments and gives you a feel for the era.
