an earhart chappel photograph. earhart on photography. chappel on hair , make up, props, and wardrobe. a chappel edit (the hopeless romantic i hate to admit i am!) model ‘for her love at war’ is co.
a vintage beauty who sends her love off to war overseas with a small photo of herself, in the apron he gave her.weathered some what form him keeping it close to his heart during battle. and peering at it when he wants to dream, that his life will continue, and her will go home to marry her.
(the apron was a gift men would send home to their loved ones at home before being sent off this apron is a real vintage apron from wwII , given to me to shoot for this series from a wonderfully colorful vintage shop here in charlottesville virginia).
yes this photo made me dream off a bit.In the past i have done research on wars (revolutionary in America mostly, as i am near many a battlefield where i live). and i have read many a letter home from men at war back to their loves ones. but the sadness remains as many never made it home, alive or dead, and at times were lucky to even be buried, never mind identified.
sorry i am a sucker when it comes to stories of lost loves…chappel
