We all get distracted and absent-minded sometimes, especially after a long day. But New York-based photographer Kurt Sneddon was really out of luck. He recently photographed a wedding and forgot the photos on an NYC subway train. It wouldn’t be too tragic if it wasn’t the only copy of the images.
As he writes, he was “distracted and overwhelmed,” and he simply left the backpack with the photos behind. Now he is reaching out t the public via social media and flyers, trying to find the backpack and retrieve the precious photos. He is even offering a $2000 reward for safely returned memory cards and hard drive.
The photographer shared the story on his Facebook profile two days ago, saying that the past 48 hours have been the worst of his life. The short story is that he got overwhelmed and distracted, and he left the photos on the subway. I can’t even imagine the feeling.
The last 48 hrs have been the worst of my life.I was entrusted to photograph a wedding and I’ve fucked up beyond…
For the New Yorkers who’d like to help the search, it’s a Grey Thule backpack left on a downtown “B” train on 18 September around 11 am. You can post on Facebook and Twitter with hashtag #findourweddingpicsnyc or contact 917-826-4838 if you have any info.
