Useless Photographs

Posted in News by JS on April 28, 2012

About twenty years ago I was a bit careless when I invited people to send me their unwanted photographs. I was surprised how many people took my appeal seriously. Some people do up to the recent day:

Here’s a message to the person who anonymously sent an envelope with photographs to The Photographers’ Gallery in London a while ago: Please do not send any more of your snapshots. They are absolutely useless. If you have more of them, rather throw them into the trash bin. This is where they belong. Thank you for your attention.
