Way, Way Back! A photographic metaphor of the White House in ’74

I took this photo of the White House in the spring of 1974 during my high school’s senior class trip. With President Richard Nixon under heavy criticism for the Watergate scandal and only a few months from resigning from office (we didn’t know that when I took the shot), I chose to do a “statement” photograph using the outside fence as a metaphor for what was going on in our country. I called the photo “White House behind bars.” Looking back, I like the photograph very much and I can’t say that things have changed much in politics in the intervening 46 years. I have purchased a slide converter and posting these “Way, Way Back” images and this is a scan from a 35mm Ektachrome slide taken with a Nikon F1 camera. Click here for all my “Way, Way Back!” photos … (Remember: Click on the image for a bigger version – then click on that one for the full-size photo.)
