Thinking about my grandparents who where farmers and school-teachers in rural Germany.
I look at old pictures (around 1925) of young farmers.
What do their clothes, haircuts and hairdresses tell me about their social status? Can I read personality characteristics in their faces ? Does their postures tell me something about their attitudes?
Their clothes: of which fabric were they made of? Are they "Sunday-clothes"? What about the working-day clothes? Many questions. Drawing helps seeing.
