Photo by Jason Wolffe A print from a photo made using an old converted Box Brownie camera. Jason then added the image of Calvin Coolidge using only Paintshop – one pixel at a time – he had to reverse Coolidge so the sun would fall properly. Said Jason “It looks as if he’s thirsty on the campaign trail – and would knew just where to stop for refreshments.”
