Jeans of the Old West: A History by Michael Allen Harris
Thanks to Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin and the great images of Farhard Samari who lead me to this great book about Jeans/Denim. It is a great resource to finally fill some gaps I got about this subject. The Author Michael Allen Harris basically diggs for stuff and jeans left by miners around mines since years. Most of them are still in great shape after 150 years. Thanks to the dry climate in the desert we can get knowledge about the style, details and the denim at those days. The images in his book and the knowlege is absolutely unique.
Images in the Süddeutsche Magazin are taken by Farhard, and a some of them are shown in the blog of his friend Bandit Photographer – Cory Piehowicz.
Just found a video about Harris taken by Cory Piehowicz at Cory´s Website.
