Todd Bieber discovered haunting and beautiful New York blizzard photos after developing a canister of film he found in the park. He was so taken with the images that he made a YouTube video in order to find the owners of that film.
Bieber says the photographer is someone he'd like to meet. With a little luck, his viral YouTube outreach may make his wish to return the film and meet the photographer come true!
Implications - Now, if this isn't the most post-modern use of YouTube and found materials you've ever seen, you're on another level. Bieber seems dedicated to connecting the pictures with their original photographer. "They're not mine," he says. "If I lose one picture, I'm upset. I would think they were the same way."
Well, if they aren't, the rest of the viewing public are glad Bieber thought so. View the video to see the spoils of his discovery.
