Misplaced manhole covers form part of a loose photographic study of the minutiae of our everyday surroundings, entitled 'As found'. 'As found' is a collection of photographs, taken by a number of contributors, documenting hiccups, adaptations, encounters and subversions in the street. 'As found' can be viewed in full on the Medium website.
Since their initial inclusion in 'As found', the collection of photographs of misplaced manhole covers has grown to nearly 200; suggesting their own website and attempts at categorization.
