All of Us Together

I found this photo on the floor of a bus. Nobody around to reclaim it. Wonder who are these women and children? Who lost it? It seems to be taken in Torpederas beach, Valparaíso, Chile. Says “year 1941″ on the back…”

Hot Box

Found on my way into the library.

Piano Man

I found this photo in the late 70s. It was in a box of papers that was being pitched out (we were cleaning up a practice space at Kenyon College). I’ve always wondered what character the Piano Guy was playing.

The Stranger

I discovered this photo inside a 1974 folio edition of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus, bought for 50 cents at a used book store. The quality is the same as photos I took and developed in my home darkroom when I was in highschool. I hope the person will recognize himself and write to explain … Continued

Grilled Turkey

Classic situation. A friend of mine was at a rave in Wisconsin and found a roll of film. He developed it to see what was goin’ on. This pretty much speaks for itself.

Jack Shit

My friend Dave Mertzig found this in an abandoned house that I was too chicken to go into. I love the chemical spills, the double overalls, and the hat.

High Noon

I found this on the sidewalk next to a debris box on Central Avenue, between Fulton and Masonic.


I found this in a used copy of Mother of Pearl, probably being used as a bookmark. There is something both sad and happy about this picture. I was hoping there would be something written on the back, but there wasn’t.

Baby Blues

Polaroid of baby with headphones from November of 1966 that I found in a thrift store.
