Ron Slattery’s Amazing Collection of Found Photographs


Ron Slattery was one of the amazing presenters at last week’s 20×2 Chicago event. While I was looking over the links to all the speakers recently, I stumbled across Ron Slattery’s website, bighappyfunhouse.com.


Slattery is a huge (huge!) collector of old/found photographs. I learned on Saturday that he’s one of the three people who discovered/purchased some of Vivian Maier’s work.

Slattery’s collection is absolutely massive. I stumbled across his archive page, and this thing dates back to 2004! Each entry is its own found photo and it’s simply fascinating to sift through.

While I wish there was some way to easily move to the next or previous entry, it’s still a great place to lose a lot of time. Look around, explore… and see what you might find.
