I'm fascinated by the haunting photos that can be taken in abandoned places and forgotten places and much beauty can be found in the everyday. I don't know that I would enjoy reading the book from cover to cover, but I do believe I would love the pictures and their 'captions.' Thank you for the review!

This book will definitely appeal to photographers, and some other everyday people like me who even though they are no professionals, enjoy scrolling through photo albums. Thank you for the review!

Thank you for sharing your review with us. I like the idea of forensic foraging and the authors have some very interesting thoughts on the different kinds of photography and art that exists. I enjoyed the beautiful pictures in the book of, as you put it, the mundane everyday things. I also think there is beauty to be found in almost anything.

I don't like poems, but I like pictures. A picture can tell us a lot of things. I find these interesting. I would love to read this book. Congratulations on #botd.

I'm not always into photography but usually fascinated by the art. Well, I might read this book to know more about photography as I like the fact that essays and poems provided also blend well with the overall theme of the book. It also sounds good being exceptionally edited. Great review!

I was captured by how the book made you feel! I think in this modern age, we forget the beauty of the world around us....even if it is small, old or rusty. Thank you for the great review.

By pairing the art pieces and poetry together, I think that would put an unusual twist on how things are perceived by readers.

The novel is appealing, it involves combination of essays, poems, and photos taken from abandoned sites that speak lots of volumes to us. I also like the part that says photography to unlock the unseen.

Thanks for the review. It looks like Forensic Foraging is a very useful book for digital photographers. This book includes pictures, articles, and poems. Good to know, this book is interesting to read and visually attractive. I think art lovers find this book extremely useful. Congrats to the author on BOTD!
