Disfarmer 1940’s Baby

In 1940’s Arkansas, there was a photographer who went by the name Disfarmer. He was the son of a farmer and changed his name to show his discontent with the family business. Disfarmer’s portraits captured the lives and emotions of the people of rural America between 1939-1945. This baby portrait inspired today’s Room Muse.


He’s a cute little fella, isn’t he? I found pictures on Facebook where other Disfarmer subjects had actually tagged themselves! I wonder what this guy’s story is…

For him I created a kid friendly room in red and blue.
