Beef Noodle + Great Old Kodachromes

Miles Basil at the Albright Knox

My son and I had a wonderful visit in Buffalo this week. A highlight was visiting the Albright Knox Art Gallery (that’s Miles, above, standing next to Andy Warhol’s “Beef Noodles” lithograph). We both fell in love with the photographs from the “Full Color Depression: First Kodachromes from America’s Heartland” exhibit. It was astonishing!
