Dick Jewell: Found Photos
One of my favourite artist’s books is Found Photos, a collection of photo-booth portraits put together by Dick Jewell in 1977. All of them had been rejected by the subject, sometimes for fairly obvious reasons and sometimes for no apparent reason at all.
My essay on the book was written for the online journal Image [&] Narrative, based in Belgium. It appeared in an issue on ‘Photography and the Book’, Vol 11, no 4 (2010) and can be found online at: www.imageandnarrative.be
