LOOK AT ME a collection of found photos

I love old photographs and what they convey - both esthetically, the feeling of their texture and quality, and as the kind of incidental every day documentation that I find really fascinating.
It's like getting an insight into an old forgotten world, a place far away, but still somehow connected to you. It's also an immense inspiration found in the angels, composition, lights and shadows of the photographs or in someone's personal style or the way they hold themselves. It's the beginning, middle or end of a story.

LOOK AT ME is a collection of found photographs - sometimes found in the street, lost, thrown away or discovered at flea markets. "The images now are nameless, without connection to the people they show, or the photographer who took them." The original intent unknown.
