love-pictures is an online gallery and archive curated by Will Mebane and Scott Tolmie.
The site serves as a space to celebrate found and taken photographs that are experienced as much by the heart as by the head. Viewers are encouraged to submit their love-pictures both found and taken. Please visit the submit page for details about submission guidelines.
The inaugural portfolio is selected from Scott’s archive of over 4500 found photographs, and is the product of almost 40 years of collecting. Thirty of Scott’s found photographs were featured in the 1998 exhibition at SFMOMA, Snapshots, the Photography of Everyday Life, curated by Douglas R. Nickel. A catalogue of the same title was published by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Fourteen of Scott’s found photographs reside in the permanent collection of the SFMOMA.
