    I would offer the pictures of the atomic bomb testing to the Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/ for the National Archive.

    Why? My father photographed Ann Margret before she was famous. He was just a small time portrait photographer and she just happened to live there at the time. I still have a large print he made of her. Unfortunately, its not porn or it might be worth more than $10. .

    Someone in NY could easily have photographed local models who went on to become famous, couldnt they?

    Good idea but just be aware that the Library of Congress is NOT the National Archives; two very different organizations.

    The LOC is (literally) the Library of Congress and, as such, have different access policies than that of the National Archives and Record Administration.

    www.loc.gov

    http://www.archives.gov/

    NARA has all the public domain films you can copy for free, because they were paid for by taxpayers; the LOC has no obligation to make any collections available, but tend to be very open about access.

    You do not want to break the collection up in any way. The collection as a whole is what would make it interesting and worthy of inspection by those "in the know", not any one photo. Keeping everything as is is essential to preserving any historical and/or monetary value that the material MIGHT have.

    Having the negs is very important and increases value quite a lot, IF anyone is actually interested. If the pix have any writing or documentation, you stand an even better chance of interesting somebody.

    It is not going to be a gold mine by any means, but the pix should at least be offered up to be examined by experts. As long as he can prove the provenance, contact Curatorial Assistance in Pasadena, CA. Graham Howe is the owner, and he may be interested. Great guy who provides a great service. If he is not interested, he can at least provide some guidance and/or point you in a good direction.

    I am sure some of the military history magazines now on the racks would be VERY interested in the bomb photos.

    The Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation, which runs the Atomic Testing Museum, might be interested as well.

    Interesting thanks for clearing that up!

    Images like this were going for about $300 a piece at AIPAD this past year, including things like photographs people had made of themselves while having sex long before Polaroid. There are a few galleries that deal in vintage pornography, though I couldn't tell you which they were offhand.

    Most interesting indeed. Some I think even looked like good artistic photos.
