I have started a new project collecting, displaying and discussing old photographs. They are images that have often been stuck in archives for years, because of their age many are no longer under copyright so they are in the public domain. I am attempting to breath new life into these photographs. Let me know what you think, or if you have any ideas or suggestions for improving this project.

hi! I really find it interesting to dig in old stuff as well, not always create a new creation. My friend Ivars Gravlejs started with his archive and made a solo show with his school time taken pic from the 90ies. See: http://www.vmm.lv/en/arsenals/ARSworkshop/ARS_CW/
I adore his this project!

I love old photographs, particularly ones used as postcards. I find the combination of the old image with the written word to be particularly interesting. Even the old handwriting is different and suits the washed out, browning color of the old photos.
i love love love these. what do you think of elliott wilcox? i always feel he makes modern look vintage:
