About this object

Photographer Reginald Heron, originally from England—received a master’s degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1966. The photographer once taught photography at the Illinois Institute in Photography in Chicago. Heron’s work speaks to the photographer, with his in-depth examination of the surrounding world. Heron not only takes a picture but looks at the philosophical, scientific, and sociological. Depicted in the image are three photos in one image. The photo shows a small boy playing on the floor with an 18-wheeler truck toy. A nursery teacher stands beside the boy and appears to talk to the young boy. The photo is part of a 10-photo portfolio of an experimental nursery that was sponsored by the Department of Social Psychology at the University of Chicago.
