5.© Drew Makepeace. Wall Face. I don’t actively look for faces; they pop out at me when I least expect it. Its like the faces are finding me rather than the other way around.

They caught my eye while I was resting in bed with my head tilted sideways. I stared at the screws and began to see the face of a rasta man with braided hair. And no, I did not set this shot up.

8.© Tim Simpson. How Do You Like Your Eggs? This image is composed of my breakfast. I was having a new kitchen installed and couldn’t boil my weekend eggs, so I bought a microwave egg cooker. One Saturday morning, this face appeared, looking at me, slightly shocked about what was going to happen.
Found Faces is one of those light-hearted photobooks that compiles photos taken by fun-loving photographers from all over the world. It’s a celebration of the artist in all of us — and it’s sure to make you smile. The focus of this book is the art of finding “faces” in unexpected places — and the combined result is a riot of quirky points of view.
It includes the work of over 90 photographers from 26 different countries, along with their often-humorous reflections on their particular discoveries.
This would be an ideal book to share with a beginning photographer — dozens of examples demonstrating simple ways to “see” differently in the world that’s all around us.
