A Word A Week: Found

Photo: moderna

The word for this week is FOUND. As in to come upon or discover.

The "Look at Me" project is a collection of found photos. These are photos lost or forgotten, but each has a story behind it. The project
started when Frederic Bonn and Zoe Deleu found a few photos in a Paris street in 1998.

Who are these subjects? What are they like? How are they connected? Are they?

Project excerpt:
... Some of the photos were found on the street. Some were stacked in a box, bought cheap at a flea market. Showing off or embarrassed, smug, sometimes happy, the people in these photos are strangers to us. They can't help but be interesting, as stories with only an introduction."
