ORPHAN  EDITIONS

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
 the photobook medium allows for 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.
