DETROIT (AP) — An exhibition opening this summer at the Detroit Institute of Arts is offering a look at so-called found photographs rescued from attics, resale shops and other places.

“Lost & Found: Photographs from the DIA’s Collection ” opens Aug. 26 and is scheduled to run through March 3, 2019.

The exhibit will include photographs from the 1860s to the 1970s by unknown and amateur photographers that provide a glimpse into the city of Detroit, themes associated with the automobile and portraits that immortalize family members and everyday people.

Included are images from carnival photo booths, family albums, snapshots and commercial portrait studios. Museum director and CEO Salvador Salort-Pons says in a statement the exhibition “brings to life how photography reveals the relevance of our shared experiences.”
