Orphan photographs

I was asked by a British private collector to find the author of a series of glass plate photographs he purchased at a flea market. There were only a few clues, but after meticulous research in public archives, libraries and online, using various research techniques, I finally solved the mystery.

“Our problem was to unearth the provenance of an 80-year old archive of photographic slides from the Balkans. From only the most meagre clues, Gregor solved the problem with the resourcefulness of a skilled detective. A remarkable achievement and a book now in progress as a result.”
