In the UK started the ‘This Was Found’ initiative. Its founders print and frame pictures and place them in city sites where photographs (and art in general) are uncommon– from graveyard to a tree in front of a post office and everywhere in between. The idea is that anonymous passerby can either enjoy a brief photo pleasure, or pick up the picture and keep it. People are encouraged to update the “This Was Found” website with information on where and when they found an image.
