I love this start to the first "currently loving…" of 2008 with Lisa Congdon’s gorgeous collection of mini photos…

WHO…Lisa Congdon, San Francisco-based artist and co-owner/gallery director at Rare Device.


CURRENTLY LOVING…Tiny vintage one inch photos. I collect them at antique malls and flea markets. Someday I am going to do something amazing with all of them when I have over 500! I love how delicate they are, the expressions on the faces of the people in the photographs, the sepia tones of aged film. Mostly, I love the way they look hung together.

  1. ooh, I love them too!
    I offer some of them with my pieces, along with a shortstory written about the person on the photo, that we don’t know…

  2. Lisa Congdon is the absolute coolest. The company I work at just licensed a bunch of her images for magnets, and she is such a pleasure to work with–so creative and smart.

  3. I love them! Old photos are the best. It’s almost like things come out more interestingly when you only get one shot. Don’t get me wrong, I love my digital camera but these are great!

  4. I have this collection of vintage postcards i love, but never knew what to do about… I’m definitly doing that on my entrance hall. Thanks! Lisa Congdon is an amazing artist 🙂
