Garage Sale Masterpieces: Newsweek offers a tiny but tantalizing sampling of 17 images from the 1,500-piece found-photo collection of St. Louis, Missouri, connoisseur John Foster. "When I look for images," says Foster, "I look for something that makes you almost uncomfortable in your own skin—something that makes you observe more intently. That's when I know I have something that's more than just a snapshot."
Of the ones not shown here, I especially like no. 5, and doesn't no. 10 look like a Cindy Sherman?
The online sample is just a taste, but fun nonetheless.
