WallflowerVintage presents: The Art of Uncle Art

This past Veteran's Day, we paid tribute to A.W. Byron (Uncle Art) by using his 1917 Graflex camera along with our digital camera for an inventive photo shoot (inspired by the photographic stylings of Kristybee).

We had secretly hoped to see residual images from post WWI Europe where Uncle Art was commissioned to "travel to the capitals of all nations asking for reparations from Germany". But instead were pleasantly surprised by the romantic, quite beauty of the photographs.
