Description: Photograph of a boy standing in an over grown field by a wooden home. In the image, the small field is filled with flowers and the boy is wearing overalls and a straw hat. The house in the background has a chimney and is surrounded by trees on both sides. Narrative by Junebug Clark: Wow. This is the first time I have seen this image. It is of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Wright, Jr. looking back at the home that Joe Clark, HBSS was born in. The home built by his father Wade Hampton Clark, Sr. My father, Joe, was a "Homesick Hillbilly." A lot of his photos were autobiographical in nature because he had no photos of himself growing up and saw this way of life disappearing. To me this is a powerful image depicting a powerful moment. It is easy for me to imagine what my dad was thinking and feeling when he made this photo.
