Superior Stock

Superior Stock, a creative commons project, is a curated collection of the nature photography of my great-grandparents from the 1970s. I combed through thousands (and thousands) of their photographs to find some gems to share with the interwebs world.

The Project

An ongoing curated collection of the nature photography of my great-grandparents from the 1970s. I comb through thousands (and thousands) of their medium format photographs to find gems to share as creative commons (cc0) images.

The Process

After selecting & scanning the photos for the site, I upload them to a tumblr I built. I also designed a logo for the site and created a premium photo pack to benefit The Nature Conservancy.
