Story From the Rubble....
When we were out tagging, we would constantly see valuables and personal belongings scattered about. We never looked through this stuff or even wanted to mess with it. I did make one exception because I see it as an opportunity for service, and if possible I can restore it to the owner or maybe his/her relatives.
Each city hall is collecting photographs from their respective areas. While we were tagging one day, I just so happened to spot a disposable camera beneath some junk. It was damaged, only had a 3-4 exposures taken, and was in an area that was about to be bulldozed over anyway.
I felt impressed to grab it and to see if I can help an unknown soul tell their story from the rubble. So many people lost so much it is impossible to comprehend, but to me, this is a chance to perhaps tell story of just one of them, who very well may have been killed. Part of me hesitated on this decision, but ultimately I knew that the camera would have been destroyed anyway if I didn't try.
Any salvageable prints will be send to the town hall. I will keep you posted.
