In 1884, in a small town in Arkansas, Michael Meyers was born, the sixth of seven children in a German immigrant family of farmers. Going against the grain of his upbringing, Meyers worked as a commercial portrait photographer, and, in 1939, changed his name to “Disfarmer.” Little is known about the reclusive Disfarmer, though having him take your picture in his Main Street studio in Heber Springs, Arkansas, was a main attraction. When Disfarmer passed away in 1959, a retired Army engineer named Joe Albright bought the old studio and it’s contents. According to the Disfarmer website, Albright found thousands of dollars (cash) hidden in film plate boxes, and over 3,000 glass plate negatives, which he put in storage.
