I found this site “Look at me” .. quite an interesting collection of old, forgotten and found pictures.
The following is from the “Look at me” website.
LOOK AT ME is a collection of found photos.
These photos were either lost, forgotten, or thrown away. The images now are nameless, without connection to the people they show, or the photographer who took them. Maybe someone died and a relative threw away their photographs; maybe someone thought they were trash.
Some of the photos were found on the street. Some were stacked in a box, bought cheap at a flea market. Showing off or embarrassed, smug, sometimes happy, the people in these photos are strangers to us. They can’t help but be interesting, as stories with only an introduction.
The LOOK AT ME project started with a few photos found by Frederic Bonn and Zoe Deleu in a Paris street in 1998. The collection now contains 616 photos. If you’d like to contribute a found photo, click here.
This project has been featured in the New York Times, the Financial Times, was the cover story of Design Week Magazine (UK), and was site of the week on many portals (MSN, Yahoo, etc..). A special edition of photos, a couple over 20 years, was featured on The Morning News
