Title: Guitar Maker's Shop
Description: Interior of a guitar maker's workshop, with a workbench, tools, guitars, and other stringed instruments. In the foreground, there is a ghostly image of a seated man, likely that of the luthier, Leo Uhlmeyer. This effect was created by the photographer's use of a long exposure, and having Uhlmeyer leave the scene before the exposure was completed.
