There’s something profoundly sad about a missing persons poster. That rectangular piece of paper often signifies a last ditch effort, a one in a million chance, and it’s that desperation and sadness that Graham MacIndoe captures with his “Missing Persons” photo series. Started way back in 1989, the series takes an up close and personal look at the posters many of us pass daily but never notice.
You can find more of MacIndoe’s work at his website or on the New York Times’ Lens Blog.
