Being a photo collector, I end up with thousands of damaged photos from lots. As long as I have been collecting and collaging, I have made use of those marred photos. I know some collectors who cringe when old images are used for art, but these were not pristine or even interesting. I do keep the ones that are unusual or beautiful for my photo collection even if they are damaged.
The collages shown here were made either yesterday, or last year. I like working with the photos on board, but I also have a very large group of snapshot collages that I have made over the years. I have plans to put those in photo albums. I will show some of those in a future post.
