Ross Mantle’s work is based in documentary traditions, but actively questions this genre’s methods and histories to formulate new forms of visual storytelling. This image is part of a series titled Misplaced Fortunes, a project which weaves photographs, original and found text, historic imagery, and typographic symbols into an interrogation of the myth of General Edward Braddock's pay–chest, rumored to be lost in 1755. Mantle’s work has been commissioned by TIME magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and WIRED, among others. Mantle currently teaches Photography at Carnegie Mellon University.
