The authors share their experience and expertise on a kind of photography (forensic foraging) that finds the beauty and extraordinary in the mundane and commonplace daily life scenes. They share their techniques, travels, poetry, and photos. This book would be of great interest to ones who want to know more about this type of photography.

Thanks for the review. I don't enjoy reading non fiction and poetry. So will pass reading this book.

Some photographers have a talent of capturing the beauty that most people overlook. Sounds like this has an appropriate accompanyment. Thank you for your informative review.

Sounds like it is well written and the art is probably beautifully explained. If given the chance one could probably see what the artist was saying about the painting. This just isn't one for me. Congratulations on BOTD.

Sounds a beautiful book of art, poetry and essays. I’ve always believed in taking pleasure in life’s small delights and this book reflects that.

The combination of photography and poetry into a single book is a unique concept. I wonder if this work can be classified as abstract art? I may just have to read the book. Thanks for the review.

I'm not a fan of poetry but when it comes to photography i am definitely into it. Plus the book has its own unique way of describing how the portrait really looks like in a different types of perspectives that really grabs my interest. Thank you for the review. This is a very good book for the aspiring artist and also for someone who are interest to learn this kind of arts.

Forensic Foraging by William C. Crawford and Jim Provencher is a #Photojournalism that shares compelling photos which chronicle both the authors' throwback techniques and their ever-driven wanderlust. They also present prose and poetry that offers keen insight into their travels as experienced lensmen.

I'm glad to know that this book is exceptionally well edited, and you enjoyed reading it. Thanks much for the review.

I think this review wad very well written. The art included in the book was very well explained in that it is
"found" or it's beauty in the mundane
. I read the sample and found the art included to be very interesting and iI what viewing it. I would be interested in reading this it further to examine the poetry that is also included in the book.

Being an art enthusiast myself, I love the idea of finding the "beauty in the mundane". Great review.

Seems to be a good book for those who are into photography. Also the blend of poetry and essays along with photography is really interesting. I would suggest this book to my photographer friends. Congrats on BOTD!
