Fascinating stuff, beautifully presented. That young couple gives me new hope in Craigslist.
Roseanne guy is awesome. Great concept-reading craigslist ads I always wonder
Wow- this is cool, poignant stuff. Thanks for making and sharing this work.
Bummer, thought it would be a in depth, realistic story of how the vast majority of listings in these sections are really just spammers or dudes looking to get images. oh well.
This is amazing. I always wonder who the people are behind those ads and now I see what some of these people look like.
Brilliant and fresh. Thanks!
to you whom are indeed beautiful. While I love the fact that you can forget you are beautiful, I will never, ever forget how beautiful you are.
this is a great idea! good work!
very very cool, way to bring a human side to text on a screen
loved that woman at the end. awesome writeup and so true :)
that last woman needs to get a fucken grip if you ask me
man, that first guy is a total babe. anyone know how to buy his underwear? give it to me albany.
this is amazing!
God bless America sometimes, y'know what I'm sayin?! That was awesome. Thank you!
very cool. you know, it's funny, but I'm often surprised at who I meet when buying/selling/apartment hunting on craigslist. for some reason i'm always afraid that they'll be real weirdoes or crazy, but they almost never are. these photos reinforce that even the freakiest sounding people can pass as surprisingly normal in person. love it! thanks for the reminder that we're all human.
this article is way cool ....it good way to bring a face to craiglist ads
I discovered CL quite by accident about 4 years ago. I have since used it extensively, and currently drive 2 vehicles found there, live in a house found there, and have bought and sold more items than I can keep track of through CL. It is now a daily habit, as the personals provide much amusing entertainment.
Awesome story. Everyone featured here is refreshingly honest. Especially love "seeking 2 men", "wannabe sub", "young bi" and "to you whom." However, the photo of "tattooed hottie" is a classic - I love the expression on both girls' faces.
Amazing concept brought to life in a refreshingly honest way. It's good to see that ACTUAL PEOPLE actually use the site.
Dear Bi Couple: I want you. Bad.
I have to wonder if the photog snapped 400 people and picked the most normal of the bunch in the end, lol. Most of the people I've met through CL are pretty normal though, so it's conceivable that this really is a cross-section, albeit a very young cross-section.
loved it. loved it so much. especially the last girl. you are beautiful. great message there, too. i agree :)
I know the underwear guy, weird!
The pictures are all brilliant, but this last one "to you whom smiled at me", it all just fits. Beautiful girl, beautiful prose.
i've dated two guys from craigslist.. hahha weird! but they turned out to be pretty decent :D!
the apt i lived for a year i found it on cl
the books that i own were found on cl
cl rules :D
Nice work and creative style photography top notch from a photographers point of view
