THE BASEMENT  PHOTO STUDIO

 

I'm a collector of photography.  Specifically of 19th century, vernacular, and snapshot photography, though I have a small, but growing collection of 20th century and contemporary fine-art work.

 

The Alcoa Care-Free Home basement has been transformed into a photo studio and gallery space to house and work on my collection, and also to store parts of it in a climate controlled environment (The Archival Room).

 

I also have a website, foundphotographs.com, which showcases some of the collection (in, unfortunately, a not very curated form), though it hasn't been updated in many years, so there is much more material to post when time allows.  I will also soon begin dealing in/selling photographic work that I'm "decommissioning" from the collection.  foundphotographs.com will be updated to reflect that when the time comes.

 

Below are some images of the space.

I've used the stairwell to display various objects from my travels...it's a kind of cabinet of curiosities.
