Levi Bettwieser started developing rolls of film he found in thrift store cameras, and it's morphed into "The Rescued Film Project" :-) Browse away! It's fascinating.

Cool!
What I also think is cool is when you click on "older posts" it scrolls past all the ones you just looked at and it loads fresh ones with no discernible lag.

Wow, Glimpses back into time - so interesting. Thanks for sharing.

I've done some of this myself. It can be quite addictive.

ok. write an essay about why these are so much more interesting than our challenge photos.

I have a plastic grocery size bag of exposed rolls from the 80's and 90's. I really should get them developed!

Wouldn't be a bad idea to try to recreate one of these shots for a challenge, I don't mean choose one and copy it but try to get the crass crappy look.. pointless snaps kinda thing, may be fun?

Capture a crass and pointless image? Would be interesting to see what everybody comes up with.

Voyeurism. A peek into the past of some stranger's life.

Whoa... that's the challenge idea!! That takes candid to the next level. You should probably add no nudity on this one, so they don't try to sue you. :)

I rather think the point is that people in the past had a quite different relationship to the camera. Today people are more knowing, and generally more guarded. As well the camera has changed - not so much its almost banal ubiquity, or improved IQ, but its lenses and versatility: the old large format portrait camera was one thing, and the small wide angle gets-all quite another. It was all less slick and polished, and time and chance had more play.
