Found Photos in Detroit is a book of photographs and a few letters discovered by two Italian photographers while wandering the streets of Detroit. Like many other photographers, they had come to document the distressed city, but left instead with thousands of vernacular photographs, many of which were once part of a photographic police archive. An exhibition followed, and a selection of the images became this book.
