Vintage Sign Photography by Bill Rose
Great captures by Bill Rose aka Recapturist, a documentary photographer from Minneapolis, US.
“My mission as Recapturist is to capture, preserve and share the increasingly endangered beauty of vintage signs through photography. I find myself especially drawn to the Googie-inspired neon signs that many local businesses favored during the mid-1900s.
At a minimum, my hope is to help others better appreciate the artistry, history and craftsmanship they likely pass everyday without a second thought. Ultimately, however, I’d like to help business owners take the often costly steps necessary to preserve and renovate these signs so they can be enjoyed by future generations in their natural habitat… as well as through photography, of course.”
