The Anonymous Project’s goals are to collect, scan, and catalogue these photographic negatives and slides. We will curate the collection and house them in a single database, which will become an invaluable resource for students and cultural historians, or simply anybody who wants to look back on life in these periods and see it as it was captured through this singular medium. This website would also provide a portal by which the collection could continue to grow, allowing people to log on and contribute their own recovered negatives. Curating these images will be the most challenging part of this endeavor, but crucial for creating exhibitions, interactive events, catalogues and books. We foresee a multitude of exhibitions growing out of this collection, built around various themes, such as ‘love’ or ‘friendship’ or ‘loneliness.’ The possibilities for thematic exploration are limitless.
