The TOMIKO Archive

The TOMIKO Archive is an amateur photography collection started by visual artist Patrizia Bach in 2001. Bach finds photographs on streets and flea markets; she also receives them from a »secret deliverer.« The project’s aim is an emotional one: to save life histories that have been so carelessly thrown away. For this blog, she randomly chooses one photo per day as she takes inventor of the last delivery of photographs.
