ORPHAN EDITIONS are photobooks and photographic editions sourced from the Found Photo Foundation— a photographic archive for the study and care of orphan photographs. As an experimental publishing project, ORPHAN EDITIONS investigate how specific aspects of the photobook medium expand readings of orphan photographic archives that are sequential and trigger a story–telling/ documentary perspective.
Each work explores a particular approach to publishing the printed material on the Foundation’s collections.
