Found in Kitsap is an anthology of photos developed from a collection of over 75 found cameras, each accompanied by its own short story or poem. All the photos were found undeveloped inside of cameras that had been donated to thrift stores in Kitsap County, Washington.
Told in a variety of styles and voices, these stories and photos present a “day in the life” of the residents of this small, working-class county. Each story allows us to imagine the hopes and dreams, the fears and disappointments, the successes and loves of both the people who took the photos and those captured in them.
I am blown away by the creativity of this project as well as the feelings of nostalgia it manages to evoke. The care in discussing the nature of film, and exploring why anyone would give up their memories caught on film, is fascinating as well. Luke Guidici captured something profound with this work that's worth seeing for yourself.
