Inspired by the story of Vivian Maier I began to search junk shops, flea markets and ebay for interesting ‘orphaned works’ photography. I found these on ebay US, the seller had no idea of the photographer and had acquired them at a Baltimore house clearence a few years before. These are just a few of the images I managed to save, I have no idea who the subjects are or even if the photographer was a professional or just a keen amateur but I think they say something interesting about a time and place.

If you know anything about the people or the photgrapher I’d love to hear form you.
