This is the tenth edition of the found photography series, which seeks to elevate underappreciated pictures overlooked in attics and flea markets.
Herein, editors Erik Kessels and Michel Campeau gather old images pigs being bottle-fed by clients in Montreal restaurant Au Lutin Qui Bouffe. In picture after picture, we see customers with a piglet in their laps or on their table- stroking it, holding its tail, or poised with knife and fork, pretending to eat it. Playing with their food. The series is epic, begun in 1938 and continuing over thirty-five years, every image made by local photographer Jean-Paul Cuerrier.
