Found Polaroids Project

The Canadian visual sociologist Kyler Zeleny is deeply passionate in found Images from family albums, especially old polaroids. Over the course of several years he has been collecting polaroid images from different places. The result is Found Polaroids, a stunning collection of over 6000 images of anonymous people.

Kyler has a “mission” behind this project: to deliver the images back to their owners. On the website invites people to contact him If someone recognizes himself or someone that they know.

There is another interesting parallel project too, where everyone can participate. You can create and submit a story connected to one of the polaroids on the website. On this way these “lost” memories will find a new life and a new story to replace the unknown one.
