Picture This: The Amazing Found Photos of Superbomba

by Debbie Stoller


So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection of  the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, at  least, you’ll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba’s gallery of found images are so gorgous, so full of meaning, so memorable, they would make John Szarkowski proud. Presented one by one on his blog, or organized into loose categories like ‘portraits,’ ‘gangs,’ and ‘fatal familial,’ the images in his collection are by turns moving, hilarious, heartbreaking, and creepy. Going through them is an intense time-suck, but as close to visiting a photography museum as anything you’ll find online.
