Ralph’s NIdaho ‘Faces’ On Display

Above, you see World War II veteran John Meschko in his St. Maries home. John’s portrait by Ralph Bartholdt is one of many that is on display through Sept. 30 at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library lower gallery as part of Ralph’s photography exhibit: “Neighbors, Faces of North Idaho.” Ralph is a long-time North Idaho blogger (see: Skookum Photography in right rail) and now a reporter for the Bonner County Bee. Ralph e-mails Hucks Online: ” These are images of Panhandle people that I interviewed for stories over the past decade ranging from a heavy-legged Priest Lake barber to Jonesy Woltering, a 70-something independent woman who lived at Little Carpenter Creek south of Fernwood and prided herself in being able to hunt ‘as well as any man.’ A few celebs such as the late Vernon Baker and classical guitarist Leon Atkinson, but mostly just neighbors, unfamed but still worth celebrating for their decency and candor and humanness.”
