Filmmakers Shepperd and Philbrick haunted New York's Chelsea Flea Market in search of snapshot enthusiasts; the ones they met are strikingly perceptive and articulate about the impulses that drive them to collect discarded images. Some admire accidental aesthetics, but most are seduced by the stories the pictures suggest. The directors create a poignant collage from these photo fiends, consumed by mutilated snapshots of Ouija boards, comic books and antique absinthe spoons, proving that one person's junk is another's treasure.
