Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An avid collector of photographs finds himself compelled to look past another vintage print by Walker Evans or Edward Weston. He discovers compelling, magically composed snapshots of a couple, a family, a street scene, or a naked woman. He finds these pictures in family albums, shoe boxes, and at flea markets. They are photography's $5 miracles.<P>With dedication and intensity, Thomas Walther, a visionary collector of photography, has been sorting through the seemingly superfluous vernacular photographs of this century. Other Pictures is his selection of over 150 unique images from his "other" collection, his collection of found images. They are perfectly presented here, giving us the opportunity to appreciate and muse over these singular anonymous masterpieces, images as indelible as any created by the most democratic of tools — the camera.
