“Gary and Gretchen” by Amy Harper

When I was a very young, my mother had Jim Ingwersen prints of Gary and Gretchen in our house.  I remember thinking they were pictures of me and my brother. The fact that my brother and I both have brown hair didn’t hinder my opinion in the slightest. Since these prints were popular in the 70’s, …
