Found pictures of random people
So, as promised, here are some of my finds from SCRAP. They had plastic bags full of people's long lost photographs that were sealed with labels on the outside hinting at the theme of the secret photos inside. I grabbed a bag labeled "people" and opening it up was like being a kid on christmas morning, when the best part of ripping open gifts is the anticipation (or so I imagine - we only celebrated Christmas one year and it's a dirty family secret). Inside, it seems like some of the photos came from the same roll, or at least the same family. One man in particular reoccurs - he seems like a friendly kind of guy - sort of has a Ditka look going on....there's one slightly disturbing picture where it seems like people are applauding as he takes off (puts on?) his pants? So collages involving Ditka Dad to come...any ideas for the background story?
