    Lovely, the way it evokes the sensation of going barefoot. Otherwise (outfit; stream of consciousness as regards process of selection/decision behind outfit): no.

    This is absolutely lovely. I would agree with Maria, this is a side of US left aside.

    You’re a step ahead of the rest of street (fashion) photographers.

    What a lovely little girl. Look at that smile!

    Though I think I may have had a similar dress back in the 80s…

    J’aime beaucoup cette série de photos.
    On rencontre souvent des photographies d’ailleurs, de lointains, d’endroits où la tradition perdure. de lieux où la particularité culturelle persiste: même si l’image est un peu “polluée” par des détails consuméristes qui nous permettent de dater l’image (un logo, une canette…), on trouve dans ces clichés une authenticité , une singularité qui nous permettent de situer sur une carte du monde le lieux . ces images que l’on qualifie d’”ethniques” sont souvent prises en Afrique, en Asie, En Amérique du sud… Les clichés que tu prends m’interpellent car j’appartiens à ces populations auxquelles on attribue des caractéristiques identitaires fortes et je suis un peu lassée que l’on aille vers nos ailleurs pour chercher du “roots “, de “l’ethnique”.
    Le fait de te rendre dans ces campagnes profondes rappelle que la singularité culturelle persiste aussi sur le continent où Coca est roi, et que les façons de vivre et traditions sont riches et intrigantes partout.

    These pictures say a lot more about what fashion is to functionality, people in their space and their jobs, and how who we are or what we are shapes what we wear. Beautiful time capsule piece!

    I am moved by this child’s beauty. It’s easy to project the wish to see sweetness and innocence… but perhaps that is simply the reality. Perhaps her mind is full of such things of life that actually matter. Technically, I think Scott has mad another fine image. thanks for presenting it.
    Can hardly wait for the next book.

    It’s great to see photos like this among the those of bustling New York – what a contrast America is to itself.

    Love this series of photos! Maybe it’s just me, but I much rather see these types of moments than the people who walk around fashion week.

    As stated perfectly above, the innocence and simplicity is amazing in these shots. Children always bring a warmth to any picture. Great job!

    Born in Pennsylvania, this brings back memories of Sunday drives to Lancaster, where the Amish live. I see myself in this young girl as a child – innocent and untouched by the world. She connected with you and trusted you. This comes through….you have a natural God given gift Scott and we are blessed to witness it. Keep shining. The Food Stalker “Where Food & Fashion Collide”

    These shots are so, so beautiful. I love the contrast of the children’s utterly uncontrived sense of self with the almost comically serious, contrived sensibility that can plague the fashion world. You’ve reminded us about true beauty here. Just lovely.

    Did this little sister also appear in one of Mr.Schuman’s books? In that picture this lady seemed to be watched over by a wary, and vigilant older sister.

    Thank you for posting a follow up smile. I worried about one post saying Amish and Mennonite children work too hard to smile. Relief to see that joy is universal.

    This photo is just so American. There is no other way to describe. It echoes an era of the past, yet reminds us that America, in some ways, has stayed the same. This is a really beautiful picture.

    Love her bare feet! It’s so important to be well grounded – metaphorically and physically!!

    Absolutely lovely! How perfect to capture this and show a simple life. So refreshing to see a young girl confidently natural.

    What strikes me from all the subjects in the Penn farm series, is the glow in the children. They all seem sweet and genuinely happy… exactly what simplicity brings to life.
