“I published the first edition of my first book Found Photos in 1979. The book was devoted to photobooth pictures, all of which had been discarded and in most cases I had found in the vicinity of the machine that had taken them. I started the salvage process in the summer of 1968 at a booth I was visiting on Brighton seafront during the course of my my own photographic pursuits and thereafter I continued to scavenge London photo booths, in the main those found at underground stations.

Many photos I found mutilated by tearing, so I collected as much of the image that was still lying around and then reassembled them at home, otherwise they merely bare the scars of being burnt or trodden upon etc. The unscathed photos I mainly found thrown on top of or behind the machine or in a couple of cases wedged in the display panel of the booth.” Dick Jewell
