Brought to Light – photographs of film sold on eBay
Documenting the coincidence of two recent trends. Firstly, the rapid loss of general awareness about the light sensitive nature of traditional photographic materials. Second, the bazaar like display nature of online sales, where clear and comprehensive photos of the items stand in for the ability to directly view and examine the goods.
The images and text gathered here are from online sales where the people selling the photographic items seemingly have no idea that they are ruining them by exposing them to light when photographing them.
We shouldn’t laugh, really..
