In January 2009, photographer Mark Andrew had an interesting idea - he would photograph people who had placed a personal advertisement. He wanted to put faces to the anonymous postings and in doing so create "an exhibit that represents the human condition."
As he states, "Through the anonymity of personal advertisements an amazing array and spectrum of…
Maybe it's the kid in us, but it seems that we're all still in love with our toys. If you don't believe me, check out the Flickr's group, The Secret Life of Toys, which at the time of this post has over 11,244 members (or over 137K pictures). For some it's a hobby, armed with our…
