This Summer Francis Cunningham Takes Photos

I'm sorry for taking too long to post this wonderful set of photos Dick handed over to me when he visited NYC a few weeks ago. The story goes, with the camera he had gotten before going away to the country for the summer, he's been doing photography. Here is a beautiful, unedited set from a trip he took further north-east from the Berkshires, to Maine.
It's a very long post, so keep scrolling. The images are the classic Dick Cunningham, figurative painter, but here are a few unexpected close-ups of car wheels and such that recall some more abstract works my him. They really surprised me - the subject and composition. I can't wait to see more.
