Johnny & June | The Mid-South Fair | 1968

Welcome Back | Side by Side Comparison of

On the left we see a photo of Johnny Cash, with his wife June Carter Cash, on the midway at the Mid-South Fair in 1968.

On the right we see a similar (but not the same) image, of both Johnny and June, played by their hollywood counterparts (Reese Witherspoon & Joaquin Phoenix)

From the research I’ve gathered, the image was recreated by Suzanne Tenner, the stills photographer for the Johnny Cash movie Walk the Line.

I stumbled upon the original image while looking for inspiration for an upcoming shoot.

When I came across it, I knew I’d seen it before, but where!??
…I’ll tell ya where, a promo poster for the movie!

Such a stunning photo of the duo, I couldn’t keep it to myself.
