The ghostly pictures from eBay
Among all the stuff on sale on eBay, we can find glass plate negatives of amateur photographers from the beginning of the XIXth century.
Most people are not interested in any of those photographic objects and after several classified ads, they will disappear and be forgotten.
I don’t buy those photographic plates, I steal the pictures from the ads and develop them the same way I would do with the gelatin silver process (photograph is reversed, contrasted and croped).
I appropriate eBay as a short-lived stock photography, offering a new life and a new space to spread these images.
My intention is to reveal the hidden, the unseen and to save a memory which fades.
Work in progress.
