#‎FindTheGirlsOnTheNegatives

via the Jealous Curator


Have you read about the most recent internet mystery? Photographer Meagan Abell found sets of undeveloped negatives in a thriftstore. When she developed them, she discovered the gorgeous 50s era photos above and below. Here's the story in her words:

“I found 4 sets of medium format negatives while I was thrift shop hunting a few weeks ago. They were sitting in a box of old vintage photographs in these plastic sleeves, and from what I could tell, they had been taken sometime in the 50’s. So obviously I brought them home, and today finally had them scanned in, and holy wow they are beautiful! NOW this is where I need the Internet’s help. I would absolutely love to find the women in these photographs/the photographer who took them. The only info I have is that the negatives were found in a thrift store on Hull St in Richmond, VA. They are medium format, and judging by the style of dress, made in 1940-1950. The owner of the thrift store had no idea where they came from. I’m posting the best/clearest scans of the images, so if y’all could share this around, HOPEFULLY we can make it go viral and find the original photographer or subjects!”

If you have any info you can comment on her Facebook page, and if you share any info you can hashtag it ‪#‎FindTheGirlsOnTheNegatives‬.
