Jon Crispin's Notebook

American Demographics / Hope and Feathers Exhibit

Posted in Jon Crispin, old photographs, photography, Uncategorized by joncrispin on 11/07/2018


I’ll write more about this later, but I wanted to start posting some of the images that will be in an exhibit at Hope and Feathers Gallery in Amherst this October.  The photos were all featured as illustrations for articles in American Demographics Magazine and were hand colored by the amazing Robby Aceto.  I put this photograph up on my Instagram a few days ago (jonkcrispin) and got a great comment from “thepunchandjudyman” identifying this fellow as Percy Press II.  Check out this amazing clip.  Classic Punch and Judy with a Christmas theme.

The exhibit opens on 4th October and runs through the month.  Opening reception on the 4th.  Hope (and Feathers) to see you there.

    Hi Jon! Thanks for sharing your new project. I don’t quite understand it, but it sounds interesting. Please keep me posted on this. Recently returned from Utah and Arizona, where I took many photos. Had a wonderful time out there and volunteered to help with animals at Best Friends animal sanctuary in Kanab, UT. Saw Zion national park and Powell Lake. Fantastic scenery.

    Hope you’re enjoying your summer. Keep well. Will look forward to your next post. Take care!

    Regards, Martha

      Hi Martha, thanks for getting in touch. It is just a simple little exhibit of photographs that appeared in a magazine many years ago. / It sounds like your trip was amazing. And I admire you for donating time at the animal sanctuary. Wishing you all best. Jon
