This book, the essays and images in it, and the two exhibitions that coincide with its publication offer the first opportunity to assess the full range of Joachim Schmid’s work with found photographs. The results are visually beguiling, often hilarious, and deeply moving on a human level, constituting one of the most sustained and original investigations of vernacular photography yet created.
