Every so often when we are doing a project we find we don’t have everything we may have wanted to round it out. Found photography can be sometimes help. (I am not going to go into all of the legal issues, you figure out what is right for your own situation.)

Here is an example of a ‘found photo’ I used for my artist’s book Gender Benders from the 1970’s

If you’re not too anal of  a photog, give it try if it will better your project.
