Riders of the Wind by Elswyth Thane was published in 1927 and was a property that was optioned by The Banner Group. There was an effort to shop it around for a movie, but I don't see that it was ever made—though modern reviews of the book are positive.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
