The FOUND PHOTO FOUNDATION is an artist led curatorial platform for the study and care of orphan photographs. There are multiple reasons these photographs became orphaned: they may have been abandoned following the death of their owners, they may have been stolen, or they may have simply ceased to be useful and thrown in the garbage, from where they may have been rescued and put back on the market. 

Organised in informal collections, the photographs are used for study, workshops, publications and exhibitions. Creative research methods allow to unravel the diverse meanings of collecting, exhibiting and publishing orphan photography. The collections are also a source for the ORPHAN Editions.  Each Orphan edition explores a particular approach to publishing the printed material in the Found Photo Foundation  collections. 

Today, the Found Photo Foundation is located in the msdm house-studio-gallery and open to anyone who is interested, by arrangement. Please call or send an email to make an appointment.
