Organizing Photographs

By Matthew Bamberg / May 30, 2006

With more than 10,000 images in my archive, I thought I’d share how I categorize them–very simply, really.

Family/old photographs
Machines (anything mechanical from vintage phones to typewriters)
Modern homes (my clients’ newly built/remodeled homes)
Signage (for Book of Signs–The Twentieth Century)
