Emmet Gowin’s “Nancy and Dwayne, Danville, Virginia,” 1970, seems at first like the camera’s casual glance at an intimate family scene: Gowin’s niece and nephew, Nancy and Dwayne, rolling around in the grass on a warm summer day. But the shutter remains open just long enough that the image begins to make the viewer feel a little uncomfortable, with memories of what it was like to roll around in the grass half-naked, appearing afterwards at the kitchen door, more grass stain than child. –Courtesy of Etherton Gallery
