A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
In 1998 Frederic Bonn found a few photos scattered on a Parisian street and decided to put them on the web. Eight years and 572 photos later, he’s still doing it.
Look at me contains his work: cherished family photographs lost or thrown away, snapshots of time long gone, simply forgotten.
The ability to take a glimpse at the world though another’s eyes is what makes photography such a poignant art form. Sometimes it’s the photographs that were never meant to be seen by others, photos no longer cared for, that are the most evocative.
The names and stories are unknown, but the images, and the narratives that we cannot help but create, are waiting to be recovered.
Next time you find yourself at a flea market and see a box of forgotten photographs for sale, do yourself a favor and give them a new home. What you find may just inspire you.
