Saving Glass Plates From WW1 – By Michell Boysen

Living in a small town in the countryside has its pros and cons. 
One of the pros (or cons) being that if you work in an area outside of the ordinary, 
most people know about it. This happened to me, living in a very small town in southern Denmark, working as a teacher at a cultural boarding school. For those that don’t know, this is a folk high school – I’m not sure how to explain it, but it’s a place where mostly young adults come to stay for 4-5 months, studying subjects out of interest and passion, without any kind of graduation. I primarily teach music, but also darkroom courses and taking photo assignments, mostly portrait work, band photos and album covers. All purely analog.

While out photoing in the rural Manchester and Glasgow, Scott County, Illinois areas, I stopped into the Winchester Historic Square area, and made a beeline for the Antique store, but it was closed, so circled around the area, taking photos of the courthouse and other historic buildings. My father, who accompanied me on the trip, was wandering around too, and somehow found the owner, who let us in the back of the store.
