American Cleaner - Gordon Parks

The Edwardian sport of "stacking" for a photograph.

Jessie Tarbox Beals and Punkin set up to take a photograph at the 1904 World's Fair. Jessie Tarbox Beals was one of the first women in the U.S. to have a career as a photojournalist. She is perhaps best remembered for her photos of the 1904 Olympics and World's Fair in St. Louis. As a female photographer, she initially had a difficult time getting a press pass to the Fair. She took many poignant photos of the people on display in the human exhibits, as well as the rest of the 1904 World's Fair.
