French photographer Thomas Rousset and graphic designer Raphaël Verona took a trip to Bolivia to encounter a magical world of doctors, spiritual healers and medicine men. They got to know strange rites and rituals, facing some some ancient mythologies.
Rousset and Verona created a book out of the material they’ve collected, emphasizing the tension between old and new, good and evil, spiritual and physical that appears very fascinating. The book ‘Waska Tatay’ is available now from IDPURE.

3. © Richard Harrison. Cardbored? This photo was taken on a hot afternoon in my parents garden. After taking hundreds of photos of our children playing, my eye started to wander, and I found this sad little cardboard man discarded from the packaging of a playhouse.

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.
6. © Georgescu Catalin Cristian. Rasta Mana. This face is made out of the wires and cables that dangle from the side of my desk. 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.
