This brainchild of photographer Matthew Salacuse revolves around a simple—but brilliant—premise. Salacuse, a flea market and estate sale hound, has spent years buying discarded negatives, and then printing the gems. A fan of the greats like William Eggleston, Robert Frank, and Gary Winogrand, he has an eye for snapshots possessing that elusive quality that makes a great photograph—the whiff of mystery that points to a bigger story behind the image. You’ll find unattributed snaps of personalities like Martin Luther King Jr. and James Brown, Americana-infused scenes of everyday life, and more. He releases new prints from his massive archive every few weeks so check back often.
