Lost+Found was begun in June of 1997 by Angelo Cricchi and Susanna Ferrante, two fashion photographers looking to offer the multitude of services needed in the field of the visual arts.
The conception, production, and realization of commercial campaigns and magazine print work are the main activities of lost+found for clients such as Miss Sixty, Diesel, Kenzo, Phard, Energie, Byblos, Joop!, Philip Morris, and France Telecom, as well as collaborating with publications such as SPOON, ELLE (the French, Italian, and Japanese editions), i-D Magazine, D of La Repubblica, io Donna, Deutsch, and Style and the family tunes.
An alliance with Silvia Morani began in 2002 making videos and shorts such as I Limit (50th Biennale dell’Arte di Venezia), and Atelier, six shorts filmed with six artists (Ceccobelli, Dessì, Gallo, Nunzio, Pizzi Cannella, and Tirelli), as well as Mano d’Opera in collaboration with Antonio Marras.
Besides the above professional qualifications, lost+found has collaborated for years with photographic Mag (Photo It, P Polaroid, Gente di Fotografia, and Photocult), photography schools (L’Istituto Superiore di Fotografia e Comunicazione Integrata and L’Istituto Europeo di Design), and the general art community.
Consequently and with the intent of bringing artists of similar genre to Rome, Italy, a new exhibition space has been opened out of the lost+found’s collaboration and correspondence with Italian and international galleries. Recent exhibits include the work of Swedish videoartist Annika Larsson, that of the photographer Jan Welters, and DUTCH TOUCH, an installation by Dutch photographers and stylists including Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm.
