Procession to the altar
- Procession to the altar
Verner Reed shot the images for the "Life" magazine photo-essay, "A Wedding in a Land of Dolls," which described the fanciful wedding of dolls at the home of children's book author Tasha Tudor. Tudor famously eschewed the trappings of modern living and created instead a carefully constructed world based on nostalgia for pre-modern America. Reed took advantage of his time at Tudor's house to capture not only the wedding, his assigned subject, but a bit of this remarkable family's way of life. In this particular photo, a procession of girls walk down the 'aisle' to the 'altar' with their dolls, wearing white dresses and wreaths of flowers.
