FOUND Egypt

Found photography is based on the recovery of lost, unclaimed, or discarded photographs.

The photographs in this book document a family in Egypt, around or just before WW1. Without the facts any story can be imagined around the picnics, army uniforms and days out at the seaside. The deterioration of the photos add to the beauty of the subjects and look as though they could have been deliberately altered or painted to look as they do. There is a visual narrative throughout.
