Rarely Seen Photographs Captured More Than You Already Know
Written by Jacob Shelton
This collection of rarely seen photographs capture a different side to history than you already know...with the advancement of modern technology, the photos from the past reveal more than we ever original expected to see.  
Take a closer look...now that they’re rendered in gorgeous color they’re no longer just photographs, but fully fledged true life moments in time. This personally selected collection of vintage photos that have been transformed from black and white to color will show you what life was really like in the past.
When black and white photos are colorized the process doesn’t just change the way they look, it adds a level of detail that puts everything into a different perspective.
Every one of those beautiful colorized photos has to be seen to be believed, but not all of the stories are suitable for all eyes… view these snapshots with discretion. 
No longer bound by the constraints of black and white, these gorgeous color photos capture more than expected.


Ernest Hemingway and his son Gregory, Sun Valley, Idaho. October, 1941

The youngest son of Ernest Hemingway, Gregory was every bit the spitting image of his father when he was just a boy. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Gregory was said to be a great athlete and a “crack shot,” it makes sense as he grew up the son of one of the most macho writers of the 20th century.
Gregory and his father often decamped to the Club de Cazadores in Cuba where they went shooting for live pigeons. When he wasn’t vacationing in Cuba with his father he was attending the Canterbury School, a Catholic prep school in Connecticut, where he graduated in 1949.
Sadly, he and his father were estranged following Gregory’s first marriage, although he’s said to have enjoyed his father’s portrayal of him in 1970's Islands in the Stream.
Berlin 1961, Escape to the West
When the Berlin Wall went up, splitting east and west Germany, it felt as if the country would never come back together. Border police like the man stationed here were tasked with taking out anyone who attempted to escape to the west, but that just made the border police themselves want to escape.
On August 15, 1961, 19 year old Conrad Schumann put a plan worthy of the cinema into action. After contacting the police in West Germany he arranged for a car to wait for him on the other side of the barbed wire fence he was guarding. At 4 p.m. he jumped the fence and barreled into the car, by the time the other guards turned around he was already gone.
Schumann spent the rest of 1961 in a refugee center before moving to Bavaria. His story inspired so many of those in East Berlin to seek their own freedom.
Sally Mann, Candy Cigarette (1989)
If Anyone has been able to capture the every day diaspora of childhood it’s Sally Mann. With a simple 8X10 view camera she not only reframed the concept of middle class life, but of childhood and what it means to be an adult.
With “Candy Cigarette” Mann managed to capture the innocent moment when her daughter pretended to smoke a candy cigarette and the act of a child attempting to be far more grown up than she is.
It’s expressive and moody, the perfect encapsulation of what it means to be young. If only we could stay that way forever.
Night fishing in Hawaii, 1948
 
Now this is what the colorizing process was made for. As cool as this photo must look in black and white, it doesn’t hold a candle (or a giant torch) to this gorgeous shot.
The Hawaiian people have been spear fishing for generations, with many young people learning from their family, like their parents did before them. Even the most trained fisherman has to be confident to go fishing at night like this no matter how shallow the water.
Night fishermen light their trips and draw in fish with the light of kukui-nut torches crafted from coconut leaves attached to homemade poles. In order to get a more brilliant flame fishermen burned the nuts in a large piece of bamboo.
A kitten on a water lily pad in the Philippines, 1935
This isn’t photo trickery (aside from the whole colorization thing), that’s really a cat walking along a lily pad. While we tend to think of lily pads as these dainty things, Victoria lily pads are extremely thick and can grow up to six feet in diameter.
At the time of their discovery by the English, they were referred to as “A Vegetable Wonder!” and a race to cultivate the plants was set off in England - it took more than a decade before anyone could actually get one to grow.
These plants grow naturally in areas along the Amazon and their leaves are strong enough to hold up a human child, which is kind of awesome but also don’t go sitting your babies on these bad boys… just in case.

This Issue Featured a Favorite to us Conchs : David Wight; Glass Sculpturer Visiting March 5-7

Neptune Glass Waves
David began making the Neptune because he wanted to create a free form glass sculpture that really captured the molten nature of this hot material and felt a lot more liquid. They are the most free form, organic and fun to make. He feels that they really bring to life the essence of a water sculpture with their unique combination of portholes, splashes, and waves. They allow him to really create something significant.
I feel as if I am truly sculpting glass to flow in a way that is a little unconventional to really grasp the liquid flow of water. The Neptune Sculptures are the most abstract, complex sculptures that I’ve ever made.

Champagne Glass Waves
The Champagne Wave sculpture has little bubbles in the glass. This comes during the sculpting process when copper leaf is added to the glass. The copper oxidizes and creates little gas bubbles that are captured by the 2000 degree molten glass, and also adds a light blue hue to the finished wave.
The little bubbles were something that I wanted to add after playing in the ocean and surfing. When the waves were breaking on the beach I kept looking at all of the little bubbles being created by the waves and felt compelled to incorporate this aspect of water into my glass art.
Flamenco Glass Waves
Much like the Sunset Tango Glass Wave Sculpture, the Flamenco represents the relationship between movement and dance. The Flamenco is a glass representation of a single women, where you can feel and see her movement and the ripples of her dress as she is spins around and around.
Watch it Made
Without the music there is no dance. Just like when I am in the studio, I am doing all of the sculpting, but I still have my team of professional glass artists assisting me. It is a very choreographed dance and without everyone working together I would not be able to create my art. They are the musicians that allow me to orchestrate a dance that results in a beautiful glass Flamenco sculpture.

Sunset Tango Glass Waves
The Sunset Tango is representative of the relationship of movement and dance. David Wight embodies and captures the essence of dance in the movement of the glass. In the Sunset Tango he captures that moment in a Tango Dance where the man dips the women and holds her in a passionate embrace. Tango music plays a big part in the creation of the Sunset Tango glass sculpture.
Many of the sculptures seem to materialize before I even realize what I’m making. For example, I was taking Tango lessons at the same time that I was making the Sunset Tango sculpture. It wasn’t until I had finished and was looking at it while listening to Tango Music, that I recognized the subconscious influence on my creativity.

This Issue has 3 Sections for Wyland Gallery in Key West. The First Section some of David Wight Works and an Explaination of his techniques Incuding in the second section addition Glass Works; and then in the Third Section is the Complete 2021 Visiting Schedule.

Our Weekly "Around the World in Photographs in last Week's Issue January 18th. 2021 Featured the Birds of the Galapagos Islands , Ecuador. Here is the Link to that Photographic Feature


The blue-footed booby is a marine bird native to subtropical and tropical regions of the eastern Pacific Ocean. It is one of six species of the genus Sula – known as boobies. It is easily recognizable by its distinctive bright blue feet, which is a sexually selected trait. Males display their feet in an elaborate mating ritual by lifting them up and down while strutting before the female. The female is slightly larger than the male and can measure up to 90 cm long with a wingspan up to 1.5 m.
 
Blue-footed booby in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
The bird in our image is getting a bit of a foot bath among the volcanic rocks on the shore of Bartolom√© Island, one of the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. Once this bit of rest is over, the blue-footed booby may leave its perch to glide over the waters of the Pacific, until it spots a school of sardines, anchovies, or other small fish. In a flash, the bird will dive from the air, fold in its wings, and shoot under the ocean’s surface like a missile.

And those famous feet? Pigments called carotenoids are in the fish that blue-footed boobies eat. If the feet are vibrant blue, the booby is eating well—and more likely to find a mate, settle down, and maybe raise some chicks.

What do you see for the future of Key West? How should elected and City officials prioritize what needs to be done to enhance our island? The City of Key West has begun its strategic planning process, and we need everyone in the community to help.
That’s why we’ve created a survey to better hear every voice in the community as we look forward. This anonymous survey will help shape the priorities for the 2021-2023 Strategic Plan.
The survey is available on the City’s website, or via this direct link: https://www.research.net/r/9LRFTZH
We ask everyone to please weigh in. Your voice matters!

Mayor Teri Johnston and Assistant City Manager Patti McLauchlin, on behalf of the City of Key West, presented the Keys Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) with a check for over $171,000 for rapid Covid-19 testing.
The money is a portion of the $1.3 million reimbursement from Monroe County for a portion of the losses experienced due to the pandemic. During last week’s City Commission meeting, the Commission voted unanimously to reach out to social services to try and put the money where it is needed most. In addition to the rapid tests, portions of the money will be used for rental assistance, utilities, food, medical, and other essential needs. United Way of Collier and the Keys, along with the Sister Season Fund, will oversee the distribution of these funds.
AHEC Executive Director Michael Cunningham said that the 3,000 tests have arrived and will begin being deployed today. Free rapid testing crucial for anyone who has been exposed and cannot afford to wait for a swab test.
According to Cunningham, the free rapid tests are available for residents of Key West and employees of businesses licensed in the city. In order to find the locations for the tests, visit www.keysahec.org and click on “Key West Rapid Tests.” Appointments are strongly encouraged.

FIGURE DRAWING : Lothar Speer, Via Zoom. Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. January, February and March 2021
 
The Key West Art Center is happy to have Lothar Speer return as our figure drawing instructor on Zoom as a virtual art instructor. Lothar studied at The National Academy of The Fine Arts, Vienna, where he received The Johannes Fueger Medal, a European distinction in the field of figure drawing. He received his BFA from Chicago's Loyola University and his MFA from Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. His work was shown internationally as well as in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building in Washington and the Governors' Offices of Illinois and Pennsylvania.
 
His teaching is based on the classical drawing curriculum of The French Academy in Paris from the 19th century which aims at visual acuity and a methodical drawing process that delivers results. It promotes a simple and powerful way of constructing a drawing by measuring, applying angles, negative and positive shapes, and the proportionality of shapes, while expressing the rhythm, weight and flow of form. Although this is not an anatomy course per se, as a former instructor of Anatomy for Artists, Lothar will be glad to share his anatomical knowledge of the human figure when the occasion arises.
 
This workshop is an introduction to this powerful tradition for artists of all levels. Lothar has been teaching the figure for over three decades and delights in adjusting his feedback to each student's level and needs. He considers figure drawing the royal road to learning how to draw anything. The principles learned here are universal and can be applied to any subject matter and develop skill which is the prerequisite for powerful personal artistic expression.
 
COST: $250.00 January, $250.00 February, $312.50 March. Payable to Key West Art Center, (305) 294-1241. More information can be found online at keywestartcenter.com.

B. Lucy Stevens New Paintings at Jag Gallery

Jag Welcomes B. Lucy Stevens to the Gallery with a Show of her New Paintings opened on January 15th. B. Lucy Stevens is an internationally recognized mixed-media artist living in Key West, Florida. She paints intuitively from her daily life imagined in a brilliant cacophony of color and pattern. She is inspired by primitive art and her travels to Indonesia, South America, and France.

"I paint what I see, what I remember, and what I imagine and it all gets mixed together, like it is in my mind. I crave solitude but fear isolation. There are times I cannot stop painting—I make a cup of tea and forget to drink it," says Stevens.
B. Lucy Steven's will open our season at Jag Gallery with an exhibit of new paintings that opens January 15th. We will have an opening day on the 15th where Lucy will be present to talk about her paintings. 
Jag will also be exhibiting two paintings from Cuban Artist, Juan Carlos Verdial Soltura for the first time.
Gallery Hours are 12-5 pm daily. For more information please call: 305-407-6202. 
Jag Gallery is located at 1075 Duval Street C-23 in Duval Square or visit the gallery on-line at www.jaggallery.art

The Market typically includes cheese, produce, fruit, baked goods, coffee, plants and fresh seafood along with international cuisine available for take-away. Arts, crafts and general merchandise round out the offerings.

Blankets and lawn chairs are permitted with ample space to social distance.
 
Stringent safety measures and precautions remain in place to guard guests and the vendors who serve them. Masks are required, spaced line management enforced, social distance signage posted and the number of guests per stall limited. Booths are spaced out in one long row down the Mole facing the open ocean. Key West First Legal Rum Distillery free "Ruminizer" hand sanitizing stations are at the entrance. Organizers realize patrons may be eager to socialize but are reminded to not congregate in groups larger than 10.

SHADE & SHUTTER GALLERY. 1102 White Street WWW.SHADEANDSHUTTERKEYWEST.COM ,

As the second anniversary of Shade & Shutter approaches, Mark and I have been reflecting on the past year. It has been a difficult year for many, and we are blessed and sincerely grateful for the support of our friends, customers, and the Key West arts community.
Giving back. During our second year we gave back to the community by sponsoring local arts organizations, including The Studios of Key West, The Key West Art and Historical Society, and The Florida Keys Council of the Arts. We donated pottery and photographs to organizations like the Waterfront Playhouse , the Wesley House, and local schools. We also donated a percentage of our sales proceeds to local charities, including Sister Season and SOS Foundation.
Mark’s ceramics. Mark introduced a new line of pottery that features colorful, fun patterns. He loves finding and creating these new designs. There is joy on his face as he unwraps a stencil from a piece of pottery and a new design is revealed. He also made many custom orders—like mugs, planters, and bowls with special shapes and glazes—for individuals and local organizations. Mark says that he loves the challenge of making special custom orders and he seems to have become "the village potter.”
Sarah’s photography. One of Sarah’s photos called “Diesel rust” was shown at the KWAHS exhibition “From a Woman’s Hand”. Another of her photos called “Stepping out into sea spray (ballerina)” was awarded an honorable mention from the International Photography Awards and was featured in the Culture 2021 magazine from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts. Her photo “Chug” was shown in The Studios of Key West members summer show.
Looking ahead. Mark and I could not have accomplished all this without your support. We wish that we could invite everyone to a second-anniversary celebration this month to express our gratitude, but due to COVID-19 we will wait until we can all celebrate together again. Mark will undoubtedly create more beautiful pottery designs this coming year, and Sarah will continue finding more opportunities for stunning photos in Key West. Here’s to a healthy, peaceful new year.


We wish everyone peace. Click this Link or go to Website to Order On-LIne. Here is another Shop on-Line Link https://www.shadeandshutterkeywest.com/?mc_cid=f53b339523&mc_eid=0a9e6e439e

We have Two Features from Monroe County the First is an ENCORE from Last Week

FIREFIGHTER/PARAMEDIC LT. PORFIRIO “TONY” ARAQUE AWARDED 10 YEARS OF SERVICE TO MONROE COUNTY FIRE RESCUE 
Firefighter/Paramedic Lt. Porfirio “Tony” Araque was presented his 10 years of service award earlier this week. “Lt. Araque is a devoted, hardworking, and loyal fire officer,” Battalion Chief Alvin “Cab” Bentley said. “Monroe County Fire Rescue is honored to have him and congratulates him on his 10 years of dedicated service.” Araque began as a volunteer firefighter in Big Coppitt Key and completed his training at the Monroe County Fire Academy. In 2010, he was hired by Monroe County Fire Rescue as a Firefighter/EMT. He then completed his Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting certification and was assigned to Key West International Airport. Since that time, Araque has become a paramedic, completed the Florida Fire Officer Program, and was promoted to lieutenant. His most proud moment in the past 10 years: His son, Eliseo, was hired by Monroe County Fire Rescue one year ago following in his father’s footsteps. “I am honored and proud to serve my fellow Monroe County residents and give back to my community,” said Araque.

MONROE COUNTY SUBMITTING APPEAL REGARDING PRELIMINARY FEMA MAPS, HOMEOWNERS MAY DO THE SAME
 
MONROE COUNTY, FL – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published its notice in the Federal Register seeking comment and information regarding the preliminary coastal flood maps (known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps or FIRMs). Any community or individual property owner can appeal proposed changes to flood hazard information or comment on other information included on the preliminary flood hazard maps.
 
Home and business owners in Monroe County are encouraged to view the preliminary flood maps to better understand where flood risks have changed and how this may affect their future building and flood insurance requirements and costs. To view the mapping tool and look up individual properties, follow the directions at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/floodmaps.
 
The preliminary FIRMs show local areas at risk of flooding, including required elevations for new construction or structures that are improved greater than 50 percent of their value, as well as boundaries of areas that are considered likely to experience wave activity in a storm that have different requirements for structural building. The maps, once effective, will help determine flood insurance costs. 
 
The Board of County Commissioners retained Woods Hole Group to review the preliminary FIRMs and the study. Woods Hole Group is preparing an appeal of the maps for unincorporated Monroe County, based on noted inconsistencies both in method of risk modeling and in areas identified that need additional adjustment. This is a highly technical review. A summary of the technical findings can be found at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/floodmaps.
 
An appeal is a formal objection to the proposed Base Flood Elevations or flood depths and Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries and zones. Appeals must be based on technical data that show proposed maps to be scientifically incorrect. Anyone who makes an appeal must include the method, data, and analysis used to support the claim.
 
Those living in unincorporated Monroe County with comments or who would like to file an appeal are required to submit their appeal to Monroe County staff for review. Visit www.monroecounty-fl.gov/floodmaps for more information about the process or contact Karl Bursa at 305-453-8759. Filing an appeal on a private property will require a $5,000 deposit and a nonrefundable $170 administration fee. The $5,000 deposit will be held in an escrow account while Woods Hole Group reviews and determines if county staff can support the private party appeal. Actual costs will vary, and it may cost less or more to have the review completed.

Rarely Seen Photographs Captured More Than You Already Know
Written by Jacob Shelton

A little bit about Jacob Shelton (Below)

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.

Harriet Tubman's Last Portrait, 1911
Harriet Tubman was a special kind of person. Not only was she incredibly smart, but she was brave, and knew that she was put on this Earth to make sure every person of color had a chance to live a free life.
After running away from her plantation in 1844 Tubman resolved to return to the south as often as she could in order to help rescue anyone who was brave enough to ride with her, even when she had a $40,000 reward on her head. All in all she made 19 trips to slave country 1860, making her one of the most important figures of the civil war.
Following the war she settled down in Auburn, New York, where she spent the rest of her life. She passed away in 1913 at the age of 93.

Following the war she settled down in Auburn, New York, where she spent the rest of her life. She passed away in 1913 at the age of 93.
Five year old Albert Einstein, 1884
Born in Germany, Einstein was a math whiz from an early age, proving himself to be heads and tails above students his age and even adults. Less a smarty pants and more of a child savant, Einstein was teaching himself Algebra and Euclid geometry before he was a teenager.
Einstein wasn’t just interested in math. At the same time that he was diving headfirst into the waters of advanced calculus (around the age of 12) he was also becoming interested in philosophy, and he formed the belief that the universe was built on a mathematical foundation.
It’s amazing to think that this young child had so much going on his head, if only he knew what he would really do
African American tavern in Chicago, Illinois, April 1941
Taken on April 6, 1941, at Tony’s Tavern in Chicago, Illinois. The club sat at the heart of the Bronzeville neighborhood, giving African Americans a place to go that was all their own. At the time, Jim Crow laws in the south kept people of color apart from white’s only establishments, and even though Chicago was firmly in the north, an unspoken version of the laws existed.
The club hosted some of the biggest music legends of the 20th century, from Duke Ellington to Louis Armstrong. On the menu, items like gumbo and fried shrimp were ready to feed hungry customers.
It’s amazing to see a place like this is stunning technicolor, it’s a shame that it’s no longer standing.s is a cool shot. During World War II, the WASPs (that’s Women Airforce Service Pilots) were tasked with taking noncombat military flights, making them the first women to take charge of U.S. military aircraft. There were about 1,100 of them in all.
The WASPs logged more than 60 million miles in the skky behind every possible military aircraft. They were living proof that women can do everything that men can - and look better doing it.
After England insured a victory over Germany in December 1944 the WASP program was dismantled, but people never forgot the importance that these women played in the final World War.
Robert Redford, 1973
This shot from 1973 shows Robert Redford decked out to the nines for his performance in The Sting, his second team up with Paul Newman after Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
According to Redford, the studio didn’t really want him for the role in Butch, but by the time of The Sting it was Paul Newman that they didn’t want. He told Esquire:
What was really fascinating was that when we did Butch Cassidy, the studio didn't want me. After the success of that, my name rose. Paul hadn't done so well in his last few films, so when we came to The Sting, the studio wanted me but they weren't willing to pay Paul the amount that he was requiring. I was able to give over some of my points to him so he could come in the movie. Because what remained was just the friendship.
Nicholas II - Last Tzar of Russia, poses for a quick shot
 
The final Emperor of All Russia reigned from 1894 to 1917, and even though he was solid royalty it’s clear that he’s just as amazed with photography as we are. Doesn’t this pose look familiar? Who hasn’t leaned into a shot and stared straight down the barrel for the perfect photo bomb?
 
Much of Nicholas’ life was spent carrying out the important job of overseeing Russia, but he liked to have fun when he could. He looks like he was quite the ham in spite of his royal trappings.
It would be fascinating to see if there are more shots of European royalty acting like regular people. After all, aren’t they just like us?
.
James Meredith, the first black student to attend the University of Mississippi, is escorted through campus by the US Marshals
In 1962 James Meredith became the first African American to attend the University of Mississippi. Following nine years in the United States Air Force he should have been able to write his ticket to any university, but once the registrar at the University of Mississippi discovered that he was black, his admission was revoked.
When the University was forced to allow Meredith to attend he found that the doors were literally blocked when he arrived. A riot broke out when he appeared, and Attorney general Robert Kennedy sent in 500 U.S. Marshals to keep the peace while Meredith attempted to attend school.
In 1963, Meredith graduated with a degree in political science. He wrote an account of his experience, and went on to become extremely active in politics until 1991.

 
Ford Model T - U.S. Postal Service Truck, 1925
Even though automobiles have been around since the late 19th century it’s not like postal drivers in the early 1920s were all ace drivers. They had a lot on their minds: where the mail was going, stamps, the Great Depression, you can’t expect them to be thinking of all that AND keep their eyes on the road, can you?
This is one of those scenes that was likely a regular thing in the 1920s, and it wasn’t just happening to post office workers. People all over the city were smacking their new cars into trees with little regard for safety.
Still, we hope that everyone was okay following this incident and that the mail made it to its destination on time.
John F. Kennedy , winner of the Democratic Nomination for Congress in the 11th Massachusetts District, relaxes with his dog on June 22, 1946
The American people have long held a fascination with John F. Kennedy. Not only because of the sad way his life ended, but because the way that he so well embodied the beliefs of the United States. He was an iconoclast who believed in tradition while leaning into being an individual.
In a speech on July 4, 1946 he said that we shouldn’t forget that as Americans we’re lucky to be born with so many individual rights:
To us, who have been reared in the American tradition, these rights have become part of our very being. They have become so much a part of our being that most of us are prone to feel that they are rights universally recognized and universally exercised. But the sad fact is that this is not true. They were dearly won for us only a few short centuries ago and they were dearly preserved for us in the days just past. And there are large sections of the world today where these rights are denied as a matter of philosophy and as a matter of government.
