I feel really ripped off. I thought this book would be more like the other "Found" titles. Instead, it has one picture every other page - with only the briefest captions. Too little for way too much!

True, this book is simplistic in its photo descriptions, but the photos really do the talking. Don't expect to get a voyeuristic glimpse into the lives of complete strangers; the photos are more subtle than that. From descriptions that I have read, I get the feeling that this is more of an "art book" than the other Found books. There is an indescribable charm surrounding this photography medium: Polaroids have a certain mystery and even poignancy about them, and this book does a nice job of showcasing that. This isn't the type of book that I'd go out and buy for myself, but it's nice to give/receive as a gift.

I don't understand the bad reviews of this book. It's very simple but it is what it says it is, FOUND photos. They are supposed to leave you to wonder not to have a detailed story behind each one. That is what makes the book interesting! You are left to wonder what went on, who is in the photo, and the story behind it.

you'd be better off looking at Flickr. A good number of these photos are not interesting at all, granted there are a few you'll stare at and wonder about, but the vast majority of these feel like they should have remained lost.
