The Collection

Timeview represents and manages an enormous collection of vintage ‘found and vernacular’ photos. More than 200.000 negatives and slides covering the pre-digital era from approximately 1870 up to the 1980’s. Timeview gives the opportunity to travel in time, creating new stories in which time is lost.

Lost & Found: Vernacular & Found Photography

Wikipedia defines vernacular photography as “the creation of photographs, usually by amateur or unknown photographers both professional and amateur, who take everyday life and common things as subjects. Vernacular photographs are types of accidental art, in that they often are unintentionally artistic.” Found photography refers to the recovery of lost, unclaimed, or discarded vernacular photographs or snapshots.

Every Image tells it’s own story, gives an opportunity to travel in time. Slides of Life. Lost and long forgotten treasures found again. Lives and stories captured in snapshots and then transformed into an artwork to last forever and beyond…
