From Texas State University:
“The term found photography can be used as a synonym for found photos: photographs, usually anonymous, that were not originally intended as art but have been reappropriated and given renewed aesthetic meaning.
Detroit Cousin Randy (DCR) is a selection of images from Enoch Rios’ on going collection of hundreds of found photographs. DCR consists of non-artist informed found photographs obtained from various community resources such as second-hand stores and estate sales.
They illustrate a curated, photographic vernacular that saturates snapshots in shoeboxes, cellphones, and family photo albums. DCR brings forth themes of nostalgia, wonder, humor, and earnestness. They are a type of visual anthropology that explores the mundane, discarded, and vulnerable moments of other people and challenges the notion of authorship, quality, and originality in photography and image making.”
