Thankfully for us, Johnny Eck was two things- a shutterbug and a packrat. During his career, Johnny turned his camera onto the world he lived in . Whether it was a group of friends wiling away the hot summer days on the white marble steps of his home in Baltimore or to capturing quiet moments behind the tents on various midways throughout the country Johnny shot it. Not only did he shoot it, he developed and printed his own pictures in the small darkroom he set up in the basement of his house. Most of the examples presented here are from the original vintage photographs or negatives.

If he hadn't brought his camera with him everywhere, or if he hadn't saved all the negatives and prints, it would be next to impossible to imagine what kind of people and activities had filled his life.

Thank you Johnny for not throwing anything away...
