Found Photography is a side effect of the rise of photography as a popular art form. It entails the accumulation of a huge body of images whose photographers and subjects remain unknown. These include fascinating photographs—some almost masterpieces—that could easily have been lost if it hadn’t been for their chance rediscovery in libraries, archives, homes, and institutions.
This edition presents a selection of these mysterious images that provides an alternative history of the medium. They portray a striking range of people, animals, and objects, captured in scenes that can be witty, touching, sinister, or surreal.
This series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an attractive format at an affordable price. Handsome and collectible, this series is produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions, a critical introduction, and a full bibliography. the series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
