Everett W. Kuntz

Everett W. Kuntz bought his first camera in 1939 for $12.50. As he grew, Kuntz photographed his hometown of Ridgeway, Iowa and stored the film in shoeboxes. It was only after 60 years that he was financially able to print the last of his film, which can be found in Sunday Afternoon on the Porch. Kuntz died a year later, in 2003, after a long battle with cancer in his home of Mounds View, Minnesota.
