p is for photograph


If you don't get lost, there's a chance you may never be found.

anonymouse

in january I posted about a brooklyn man, todd bieber, who phound a roll of film in brooklyn's prospect park. he made a wonderful video using the photographs developed from the lost roll of film to appeal to the world to help him locate the mysterious photographer.

can you believe it - the photographer was phound! she lives in paris. as soon as the photographer was located todd and a phriend made an impromptu trip to europe to return the lost photographs and meet the mysterious photographer!

phollowing is one of the videos that todd posted - phor more go here or here phor public radio's story on phinding the photographer.

That was a great video! I was hooked right from the beginning. Definitely has the makings of a movie but it shouldn't be done Hollywood style, it needs to be an indepdendent. Thanks for sharing.

I missed O...it seems for the last couple of days your page wouldn't come up on my computer...will stop in on the O next.
I'm about half way through God is at Eye Level...and am enjoying it immensely...it's very inspirational. Thanks for the suggestion.
I'm sure you've been visiting the Vivian Maier site with the lost photos found by a young man who's now putting together a movie about Vivian's life. I can't wait to see it....I find a lot of inspiration in her photos as well.

I love this! My first thought was "who has time to do this kind of thing?" but as I watched I began to understand how one could get caught up in the adventure. And what a journey it was! This is an example of living life in new, wonderous and beautiful ways. Reaching out to others, becoming friends with strangers, taking time and enjoying the trip.

The self-portrait is wonderful and the story of the lost photos is quite fascinating.
