Black History Month Part 3: Photo Booth Photos

I’m closing out Black History Month with a third gallery- This one containing 100 photo booth pics from my collection. See them all here.

p.s. Hopefully I’ll be posting a few more galleries of African-American photos from my collection in the next week or two- I’ll have at least two galleries of snapshots and a third of miscellaneous tintypes, studio portraits, and other random stuff that I don’t have enough of to warrant specialized galleries.

High Plains Drifter: The Photographs of G.R.M.

Last summer I picked up a large lot of postcard sized glass negatives, many damaged, at an antiques market in Wisconsin. There were about 120 in all and they all appear to be the work of the same photographer who initialed some of the photos G.R.M. ¬†Given the size and subject matter of the photos my guess is he was a professional (or at least semi-professional) photographer specializing in postcard photographs in and around South Dakota. I think this lot was a mix of his professional work and personal photographs. I’ve scanned about 50 for your viewing pleasure- see them all here.

2018 Year in Review Part 2: Gravity

My review of photos I purchased in 2018 continues with a plethora of pics of people falling, hanging, jumping, and diving. I can’t quite believe I got this many last year so I suspect a few might be from late 2017 that I somehow never got around to scanning. Whatever the case may be you can see them all here.

2018 Year in Review Part 1: Portraits

I bought a lot (and I mean a lot) of photos in 2018 so I thought it was time to get some of them scanned and posted. I thought I’d start with portraits- there’s an edited selection of about 60 here and if you’re a glutton for punishment, the unedited deep dive version of 150 is here.

Merry Christmas!

I’ve posted photo Xmas cards and photos of Santa- now here’s the rest of my Christmas photos. Some old favorites along with some new ones I picked up this year. ¬†See them all here.
