"The old Mamasan"

If you look closely you can see the tattoos on her hands and wrists that are placed on there at marriage. This was outlawed in 1879 by the Japanese, but there are still lots of them to be seen. The material in her dress is of local origins."plain2021-09-16T16:28:45-04:00The Gail Project1951-1952Dustin WrightCharles Eugene GailThe Gail Project; University of California, Santa CruzUsed with permission.Dustin WrightDW-0028Kate McDonald306bb1134bc892ab2ada669bed7aecb100ef7d5f

These images differ from those in the “Daily Life and Work” page in that here, labor does not appear to be the major focus of either Charles Gail or the people in the photographs. Instead, Gail seems particularly interested in trying to capture the portraiture (attire and physical characteristics of the people themselves), which he often described in writing on backs of the images.
