Hello, so glad to be on this board! I'm working on a series of collage quilts on canvas based on quilt patterns used during the Underground Railroad to guide slaves to safety. My works in progress use antique photos as the paper "fabric" that I construct to make the canvas/quilt/collages.

I'm also an antiques dealer specializing in selling antique photographs from the Civil War, Victorian and Edwardian periods. While there are many old photographs that are in fine condition and highly salable, there are even more that are in such poor condition that they will end up in landfills. I'm reusing these distressed antique photos to make them into collages.

The piece above, measuring about 50" x 50", was from my last series, which used plastic and paper debris that entered my home in a never-ending stream of unwanted catalogs and plastic and paper that seems to come our way in waves. I made it into paper sheets and then cut it into patterns based on historical American quilts.

I look forward to seeing all your work. Thank you for the invitation to join this board!

The writing on the card says, "Cadilhac"... makes me wonder if there's any connection with the family who started the car company.

Beautiful mourning portrait. Grief transcending time.
Offered for your consideration is this stunning antique tintype photo of a beautiful young lady in black attire. This is most likely a mourning dress, or it may simply be a very somber portrait. Her raven black hair cascades down to her shoulders and back, and she looks to the side with a grave countenance. Her cheeks are carefully hand-tinted pink, highlighting her exceptional good looks, reminiscent of classical Greek sculpture.This tintype mea...

That's a great idea. I see lots of fantastic creative projects on Etsy from people who do amazing things with vintage and antique photos. If you end up doing something, I'd love to see a picture of your project!

Hi India - I purchase the majority of mine from antique shops.  I spend a couple of weeks in Florida and do quite a bit of shopping and then make 3 or 4 trips to Adamstown, Pennsylvania which calls itself the antique capital of the world.  I also purchase at estate sales and online auctions and local antique shops and malls.  Shopping is the one of the best parts of selling!
