The Found Photos project consists of a collection of private photos which file-sharing users have unknowingly made public when installing P2P software.
The result is a pastiche of modern life upon which you can’t feel at least slighty guilty for intruding:
The Found Photos project started in 2004, while searching for mp3’s using a filesharing program.
After downloading a folder of mp3’s, I came across a folder named ‘pictures’ inside of the album folder, and found a handful of digital camera photos. This made me wonder what else was out there, what people are publicly sharing - after a few quick keyword searches I came across thousands of them publicly shared.
