A great YouTube video: On Our Way to the Dance (Pizzamas Day 6)

In which John discusses history, war, the German photographer August Sanders, and his famous picture “Young Farmers,” also known as “Three Farmers on Their Way to a Dance, 1914.”

This photograph inspired Richard Powers’ highly recommended first novel “Three Farmers on Their Way to a Dance.” You can also learn more about it from the Getty: http://www.getty.edu/art/collection/objects/34449/august-sander-young-farmers-jungbauern-german-summer-1914/ or from the Tate: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/sander-young-farmers-al00014/text-summary
