Vernacular Architecture: What is It and What Does It Mean

What a great word. I know just the person who this applies too! Scary how elaborate some can lie and create a reality that does NOT EXIST!!

What do you mean, does the carpet match the drapes? Jesus, Minnie, it's pretty clear that it DOES NOT.

I struggle with this a lot. I'm always full of "shoulds" and guilt. I have to constantly remind myself to cut myself slack. I'm going to screw up at times. Everybody does. It's inevitable. I can only do what I can do. Atelophobia ❤

Peter J Cohen is a New Yorker who has spent many decades collecting vernacular photography (which means, "amateur photos").  He has begun to donate portions of his collection to major museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where I saw this photo of a crying child with a teddy bear as large as the child.
