There is a current trend for rediscovering old photographs and using them to create new artworks. This could be because we are now realising that digital photography, as convenient as it is, is robbing us of the physical image created by a printed photo. The way an old photo ages and discolours also adds to it's value as a record of times past.
'Dear Photograph' is an online project that asks people to contribute their photos of old photos placed in their original settings. The results are nostalgic and tinged with a little sadness.
