Defaced





If you haven’t been to the Web site Square America, you are missing something. This site is, hands down, the most complete, most extensive Web site on vernacular photography on the web today. The collector, Nicholas Osborn, is a devoted collector. He has thousands of images— and I am telling you, there are great pics to view. He has divided the site into multiple categories. There are photos categories on Sleep, Love, Orphans, Costume, Dance, Photobooth, and on and on. Plus, he has a great book available for purchase “Who We Were: A Snapshot History of America”—just $35.00. Seriously, for a book like this—it is a great price. I own it, and it’s great.

Love these - great art in the form of vernacular photography! I'm jealous, I want to go to the Outsider too. Kim

I wanted to second the recommendation for Square America. It's fantastic. Not only do we love it but everyone who visits our house seems to get drawn into it. When my family visited over Thanksgiving they spend hours pouring over it.

Weird. I had a dream very similar to the subject of this post last night.

There was a photo of two girls sitting near a fountain. Then there was a huge sculpture of a dolls head. But the face was completely taken out.
