Red Surprise

I found this photo in January of 2005 on the downtown platform of the 66th Street 1 train stop. I’ve held onto it for all this time because I just love the composition of it – the lurid red, the glare of the flash on the metal door and dingy cinderblock, and the mystery of … Continued

Portrait of a Havanero

I found this picture while studying abroad in Havana. It was lying face down in a park in the Vedado neighborhood.

I found this on the inside front cover of a faded notebook in a decaying cardboard box in a cabinet in the Academic Office of my school.

I found this portrait (along with a few others) flying down a sidewalk.

I Need a Nap

I found this in an abandoned house near where I live. There are piles and piles of photographs throughout the house, but unfortunately most of them are badly water damaged. I took only this one, to send to FOUND. The date on the back says 1959.

At the Table

I found this torn half of a photo near to the rubbish bin just outside of a grocery shop, stuck on a fence boarding. It was so firmly placed there that I couldn’t remove it without ripping the corner of the photo off. The backside of the scrap says “photo taken 1967″ in Finnish.

Spiderman

Found this on the sidewalk on my way home from a movie.
