Joanne Kovach Jauregui


In the mid 1930s our father became a photography nut. He converted a closet into a darkroom, built his own telescoping enlarger from a set of kitchen storage cans and enhanced a cheap camera (needless to say, in 1935 money was hard to come by). In particular, he used an odd pink enlarger paper for a lot of his photographs of Joanne. I think this was his masterpiece even though it isn't pink.


Millions of mothers to the contrary notwithstanding, I am cerrtain that Joanne was the prettiest baby ever. I'm not crazy about this not very successfully restored studio shot, though - too artificial.
