Photo Trouvée
by Michel Frizot
Publisher's Description
A unique collection of 285 'found' amateur photographs, discovered and collected over a period of more than twenty years in flea markets and antique shops by the highly respected French photohistorian Michel Frizot and Cédric de Veigy, professor of photography and film.

Defined by the authors as 'an anthropology of the ordinary', Photo Trouvée includes personal records of universal experiences by now-anonymous photographers — a child's first hesitant steps, the tranquility of a siesta, a soap bubble on the point of bursting — images that touch on the universality of situations and resonate emotionally with any viewer.

Carefully sequenced, the pictures are placed according to their atmosphere and rhythm to create a beautiful and thought-provoking book, sure to attract the attention of the general public, picture editors, researchers, and any photography enthusiast.
