The found photo foundation, set up to rescue work produced by professional, amateur, and anonymous photographers,  has a focus on photography found in flee markets and car boot sales from Lisbon and London, whilst containing additional photographs found world-wide.

The photographs are organised in informal thematic archives, and open to the public in workshops where the contents are made available for editorial and  publishing projects. More about the found photo foundation>
