The third video in the Museum of Online Museums’ exploration of some of the people behind their treasured collections catches up with Jennifer Sharpe, a writer for NPR and the person behind the forgotten Kriegsmann photographs. Jennifer was the lucky recipient of a trunk-load of discarded photographs by 20th-century musician photographer James J. Kriegsmann. These photographs were all part of a “bad” pile, photos of non-famous musicians hoping to make it big — with some horribly embarassing headshots and group shots to show for it.

The story is quite interesting and NPR has more details behind the story.
