I've recently dug into an envelope with about 250 medium format negatives from the 30s through the 50s. Many of them are blurry or otherwise boring - but some of them are great. Have a look and see for yourself!

The name of this post is "Three men standing and talking" followed by ellipses. I'll leave it in your capable hands to figure out what the theme of this post just might be.
A documentary shot of a meeting in a courtroom, as well as a portrait of a judge. Justice is served on Negative Notions!

We have a couple of award winners here at Negative Notions - let's find out who they are, and why they won some prestigious paper!
