Joe and Bob Herzenberg at the Ava Gardner Museum - portrait by Kathie Young
ANOTHER LOST MOMENT IN A FOUND PHOTOGRAPH
Artist's Name: Kathie Young
Statement: I took this photo of my best friend and his brother having coffee after a visit to the Ava Gardner Museum in Smithfield. My camera captured the souls of these two aging men. I enhanced the photograph by inserting old family photographs and memorabilia to aid it in fitting the category 'Lost and Found'. I call my embellished art photograph 'ANOTHER LOST MOMENT IN A FOUND PHOTOGRAPH.'
(Editor's note: This portrait was Kathie Young's entry in the 2006 Chapel Hill Community Art Project, featuring Joe and Bob Herzenberg, who was visiting from New Jersey. In the photos on the wall behind Bob, Kathie can be seen hugging Joe on the night of his first election victory in 1987.)
