Today I helped a retiring friend, photographer by profession, to clear his office. His collection of negatives struck me with awe, also the amount of work it took to file all his images – and the space they take. A historian friend of his will go through all these photographs (plus those of his father in law) and extract what deems him worthy to be added to the collection of our city. His point of view will be completely different from mine – uniqueness of vision, composition, those visual things will be completely uninteresting, instead he will focus on places and people. I can only hope for a small intersecting set between those aspects, and then maybe not only important but also visually interesting images will get new exposure.
