Some of the most special moments in life are those of unexpected beauty, the ones we didn't plan for - those private, unrehearsed and unpredictable moments we all share as humanity, no matter what nationality, creed, or social background.
Captured on camera by unknown men and women, and preciously collected and edited over two decades by French photohistorian Michel Frizot and photographic researcher Cédric de Veigy, 285 amateur photographs were compiled and beautifully displayed in
Photo Trouvée, a book which presents itself as a large and anonymous photo album of everyday life.
Published by Phaidon, and portraying subjects such as children and their beloved pets, a trip to the seaside, or a person's private surroundings, this powerful yet understated book makes us relate to a stranger's history, while subtly revealing our own.
