What follows is a small selection from Walking Blues, my ever-expanding collection of found photographs.
I have coveted others’ lost or discarded pictures for over two decades. The collection includes hundreds of photographs of strangers and their pets, vacations, babies, bedrooms, parties, husbands, and wives. As evidenced by their quality in this excerpt, the majority of these images weren’t purchased or gleaned from thrift store bins. By and large, they were found close to home—while riding my bike, perusing copy shop trashcans, peering beneath the lids of supermarket photo scanners, walking through parking lots, riding trains…

I am drawn to these images not only because of the thrill of the find, but also the thrill of a view into the worlds of people I don’t know.

Walking Blues has yet to exhibited.
