    Another previously unknown street photographer surfaces, Frank Oscar Larson from NYC

    Saw this link on another web site about a recent discovery of a New York City street photographer from 1950's: http://gothamist.com/2012/01/27/1950...es.php#photo-1

    'They're in possession of "several thousand historic negatives hidden from sight for 55 years,"'

    55 years!

    What storage format could I choose *right now* that would be readable 55 years from now with just simple common sense storage?

    That's right: silver gelatin.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    These are interesting snapshots of a point in time, but they don't strike me with the same feeling of greatness like some other recently discovered street photographs. Interesting nonetheless, thanks for posting it.

    These 'newly discovered' photographers can only get worse, as everyone starts digging around their attics. Does it always have to be a great American city in the fifties or can boring British towns in the fifties also fit the bill?

    Great point. Keep them dry and you're good to go.

    Digital asset management is one of the biggest hidden costs of digital photography. Not only in hardware, but in TIME. One of my time saving goals for the year is to get another studio assistant who can sit there and take care of all that time wasting work. People think the darkroom is tedious - jeez, sitting at the computer, retouching, managing files, uploading to the lab, now that's tedious.

    It's amazing how quickly you can put your hands on a negative, even in the absence of a formal filing system. Open up a binder, flip a few pages and there it is!

    Thinking the Vivian Maier works made a whole lot bigger impression.

    Okay pictures, but not spectacular. However I liked the poster in one of the shots "4 poses, 25 cents"
