A side effect of the rise of photography as a popular art form has been the accumulation of a huge body of images whose photographers and subjects remain unknown. These include fascinating photographs—some almost masterpieces—that could easily have been lost if it hadn’t been for their chance rediscovery in libraries, archives, homes, and institutions.

This book presents a selection of these mysterious images that provides an alternative history of the medium. They portray a striking range of people, animals, and objects, captured in scenes that can be witty, touching, sinister, or surreal.
Anne-Marie Garat is a French novelist who has taught cinema and photography at the Sorbonne in Paris.

Editorial Reviews

The photos range from “the sublime to the ridiculous” and beg the reader to imagine their history and context. — Protoview
