The images from the series are Watts’ photgoraphs of the disregarded and
discarded materials on our streets.
The original issue of FINDS was distributed guerilla-style during the Brighton
Fringe Festival 2010 and around various locations in London, creating a
social frenzy as the public began to seek out their own ‘finds’. The images
from the series are Watts’ photgoraphs of the disregarded and discarded
materials on our streets.
Through this crowdfunding campaign, Watts hopes to self-publish the second
issue of FINDS and distribute them over 100 locations in Brighton and an
additional 100 in London this October.
By distributing the FINDS 2 newspaper around the two cities, he hopes to
encourage people who may not have an interest in photography.
FINDS pushes the boundaries of a considered photographic discipline whilst
also creating and engaging social, participatory experience. The public can
submit their own FINDS via Twitter using the hashtag #FINDS.
