Last week I went to the market and I' ve found bunch of extremely dirty square glasses. These were glass negatives.
After cleaning and scanning them, images came to life again. There was no information about the photographer, neither this trip.
From the first two pictures I assumed, photographer went to Russia, sometime at the beginning of 50ies. The other ones could be from Caucasus...?
Few days ago during a discussion, professor Siostrzonek inspired me, when he said that most of the images created by today's generation will be lost for the future ones.
There is something very magical about traditional photography.
The fact that, first of all I am able to find and then I am able to hold an object that traveled with a photographer such a distance, and captured exactly this light at that exact moment more than 60 years ago, I find that absolutely exciting.
In 60 years, we write year 2073. I wonder, what kind of things will people find at markets at that time.
