THE YEAR IS 1938 …when an amateur photographer named Charles W. Cushman starts experimenting with a new technology: Color film. Few would follow suit in those early days. But for decades, Cushman remained obsessed.
Not long ago, photo researcher Rich Remsberg rescued a bunch of Cushman's photos that were headed for the trash. The rest had already been saved by Indiana University. Together, they amount to some 14,500 images.
Within that archive lies an incredible story of road trips, attempted murder and, above all, one man's lifelong search for depth of field.
