The beauty of Photo Trouvée by Michel Frizot and Cédric de Veigy is that it is composed of the work of anonymous amateur photographers. Yes, you and I. Over a twenty year period Frizot and de Veigy scoured flea markets and antique shops for the finds that make up this book of 285 moments plucked from random lives. These photos remind us that moments are worth capturing and those that have been captured meant some thing significant to some one at some point. This book is a salute to the ordinary.
