Found Photos and Found Photographer

Photographer Craig Nelson bought a batch of intriguing photos from a shop in Arkansas. They were taken in Vietnam in 1967 and 1968. Nelson posted them on Flickr and searched for the original photographer. He found Darrell Hill, who discarded the pictures 30 years ago in an Arkansas dumpster, and is now an artist in Hawaii.

My mom did something similar with a bunch old letters she got in an antique store when we were kids. She located the lady and was promptly cursed at before the lady hung up on her. Oops.
