The Disfarmer Project vs. The Oxford Project

Dear all from Oxford, Iowa - did you think the Oxford Project was original? I indeed did until I pondered across The Disfarmer Project. Research about it and I would bet artists Feildstein and Bloom were greatly influenced by Mike Disfarmer (Meyer).

Disfarmer's portraits capture a similar essence to that of The Oxford Project, although during the decades prior - during the Second World War and the Great Depression.

Regardless, both sets of portraits are quite beautiful.
