Vintage and old, found photographs are a great way to source unique images for framing and displaying on your walls. Some people will no doubt find the idea creepy, but others may find it inspiring. You can find all sorts of imagery from kooky nana's to sweet nostalgic scenery shots. It also reminds us of the tactile quality photographs have - something digital photography threatens to kill – hands up who stores all their photos on the computer?
Second hand stores, markets and online sellers are good sources for old photographs, another bonus is that they're cheap. Single photos sell for less than $5 on ebay, and you can often find bulk lots.
• Trash & treasure markets - Camberwell Sunday Market (Melbourne) is a good source.
• Ebay - search 'vintage photographs' under 'Collectibles'.
• Second hand stores.
