Photographs by Norman Rockwell

We've all seen the iconic paintings done by Norman Rockwell, which provide us with endless nostalgia for an America most of us never even knew. What we haven't seen, however, are the staged photographs Rockwell used as studies before he started on each canvas.

These images are strikingly similar to his final works, except in the details he purposely changed. They show genuine mid-century interior settings, which are fascinating to see in real states of disarray, as they were not the main focus of each composition.

But feel free to focus on them all you'd like.
