On Etsy since 2016

The 35mm Kodachrome slide is a tiny window into the past - a moment in someone's life. For the last decade I've done archival work, graphic design and run my own resale business. Over this time I accumulated well over 10,000 of these slides from a multitude of different people. Even though I didn't know the people who took these photos, discarding them still struck me as sacrilege. A year ago I decided to go through them one-by-one and picked out the ones that I had an emotional reaction to. While the original context of what happened before and after these photos were taken has been lost, there is still something that is comes through that 35mm window that we react to. Anonymous moments from anonymous lives that make for one of a kind art.

Separately, I've been moving the vintage poster portion of my business over to Etsy from that "other" online marketplace that starts with an E and ends with Y (Hint: there's a "ba" in the middle)
