For a while there I was heavy into collecting "vernacular" photography. These are anonymous photos, usually found at flea markets, garage sales, on ebay, etc., that have a genuine—intentional or not—artistic quality. Was turned on to this genre by friend and art dealer David Raymond. We were trying to get a book off the ground until the market became flooded with similar material. Rather than let them sit in a dark closet for eternity, I thought I'd share some of these accidental Lartigues, Meatyards, Egglestons, and Cartier-Bressons.
