About

As a collector of photography, I found that there are few websites that are truly helpful when researching photographers, especially when it comes to Central European photography, so I decided to put together this website to show my collection and help photographers and researchers.  While I have only scanned a small portion of my collection of photographs and design, I am hoping to scan more over time to add to this site.  If there is anything you'd like to see or know more about, please contact me at fostin@gmail.com or click "Contact us."

The Fostinum

The collector is the true resident of the interior.  The collector dreams his way not only into a distant or bygone world but also into a better one.
