Orphaned Photos - Trov Reunites Photographers With Images From Lost UK Cameras

To coincide with The Photography Show (which begins on Saturday 18th at Birmingham’s NEC, England), we’re launching a special online gallery featuring images taken from the memory cards of mislaid cameras found on the streets of the UK.

In a bid to return these ‘orphaned images’ - and the lost cameras that took them - to their rightful owners, our team identified a selection of 20 of the most striking, beautiful, or intriguing images featuring people, believed to have been taken over the last decade (and each taken from a different lost camera).

These pictures can be found on this page, and we’re hoping that members of the public will be able to identify the currently anonymous subjects in these images and kickstart the process of restoring the cameras to the talented photographers who once used them.

The images given to us are among thousands submitted since 2007 to independent Vienna-based crowdsourcing project, Camerafound, to which people across the world have been uploading images that they know to be on their own lost cameras, or photographs that are on devices or SD cards that they themselves have found.

If you recognise anyone in the pictures here, please get in touch by emailing lostphotoproject@trov.com or via Instagram or Twitter using the handle @mytrov and hashtag #lostphotos and we can start the reuniting process with Camerafound.
