Announcement   A Gallery Of Unusual Photography, Artwork, and Odd Things - I am an admirer of the strange and collector of unusual vintage photography. Among the oddities you will find original vintage photos, restorations of images in my collection as well as my own original work.

From the Prop Department - In the real world I'm a commercial photographer - over the years I have amassed boxes of "cool" props that were used in photo shoots. Many items were hand selected by a stylist (and cost the client a pretty penny) for their nice vintage look. Be sure to check this section of my shop - as I go through the many boxes I will be adding more and more treasures.

The Odds & Ends section features interesting pieces from my years of collecting - you never know what you will find there.

The Main Gallery and Strange & Bizarre sections contain favorite images from my personal collection. These images have been restored to match the originals and are offered as true photographic prints made at a commercial lab. The custom papers I use are only available in large sizes so i set up 4 to 8 images on 16x20 inch paper.

Expect Top Quality - NO inkjet or online type prints here. I personally sign and number each print.

These images are only available through Obscure Archive. I pick the most unique and unusual images for the collection. Most are one of a kind images that would fall into obscurity never to be enjoyed if not here. I am very selective about the images I pick since some can take 10 hours or more to restore.

I guarantee you will be happy with everything from Obscure Archive - You can return any item for a full refund.

When looking at the lamp head on, the pipe extension has a noticeable angle to the left which was not mention in the item details. Otherwise the lamp is in excellent condition, minimum wear to shade. Fast Delivery!
