de-classified

It's been awhile since I've seen a website as intriguing as de-classified. New York photographer Mark Andrew finds personal ads on Craigslist and then asks the posters if they would like to be photographed at home.

Most of the subjects have posted romantic or sex ads, so the very act of collaborating on a photograph and publishing it on the Web would seem to negate the whole reason to post an anonymous ad. This tension is what makes the site so compelling.
