Charles Weever Cushman is an amateur photographer from Indiana, United States. For almost a half a century of travels, he has been going with his Contax II loaded with the mythical film Kodachrome, whose production was stopped in 2009.
Sixty years ago, he took some time out from his travels and stopped for a while in New York, where he shot the streets, the people, the rivers and their banks. It is fascinating to witness the quality of each image and to also be able to delve easily into those wartimes, as if it was yesterday. This week the Daily Mail has reprinted this series on the American metropolis that is part of a large collection of 14,500 negatives of the photographer, left to the University of Indiana in 2003.
