Abstract
"Back Porch (left)," along with its counterpart "Back Porch (right)," appears to be a version of "Backyard (Original)" edited for presentation as double projection, in which the left and right portions of the film would be presented side by side simultaneously. In the film, JoAnn Elam documents the gardens, neighbors, and views from the back porch of her Logan Square, Chicago, apartment over multiple seasons of weather. That portions of this film relate to other reels made by Elam also labeled "Backyard" or "Back Porch" suggests the concept underwent different directions of editing and presentation over time.
