FOUND PHOTO FOUNDATION
Artist-led platform for the study and care of orphan photographs.
There are multiple reasons photographs become orphan: 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.
