martin johnson

Nick, who posts excellent galleries of found photos at the boat lullabies, discovered the work of Martin Johnson at a flea market.

While some of the stuff was your typical amateur family stuff there was also some work that I think is extraordinary, work reminiscent of the 1960s photography of Gary Winogrand and Lee Friedlander- shots taken from behind the wheel of the car while driving across country, a series of photos of burning buildings, and two series of photos taken of TV screens- one of JFK’s funeral, the other of RFK’s funeral.
