A few weeks ago, a group of anonymous artists in the United Kingdom met in a darkroom to make the second batch of photographs for their experiment, This Was Found.
Recently in the UK people have gone out and obtained the assets of today's society, namely: plasma screen TVs, mobile phones and trainers, all for free, through the medium of looting," the artists write on their website. "Partly inspired by this, the This Was Found foundation was set up to create and distribute free photographic art to the masses, thus bringing a spot of unique creativity to the streets."
A week later, they placed their photographs on the streets and up for grabs.
