Untitled (Michael and Christopher) by Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1959)

“Untitled (Michael and Christopher)” is a photograph by Ralph Eugene Meatyard created in 1959. The monochrome image features two young boys. On the left, a boy stands with his back against a wooden building, his arms spread wide and a serious expression on his face. He is wearing a striped T-shirt, eyeglasses, and dress pants held up by suspenders. To the right, another boy, possibly younger, sits on an overturned container, focusing intently on what appears to be a drumstick or baton in his hand. Both are in front of a rustic wooden structure with a window lacking glass above the boy on the left, creating a somewhat eerie, yet domestic scene.
