Welcome to the Lost & Found archive. Since 1997, over 200 sessions of stray images and sound have been organised. Artists, writers, scientists and musicians present work in progress, experiment or present work that doesn't fit into their oeuvre (yet). A specific and unique stage for diverse and hybrid works which don't fit comfortably into galleries or museums.

Van Leo is Egypt's glamour photographer of the forties. Only five years before he died, he was recognized as as great artist. Barry Iverson worked with him the last ten years of his live and printed his photographs. Tonight, Barry shows us a selection of Van Leo's own favorites. We see a large amount of self portraits -this used to upset Van Leo's father as they cost a lot of money- and some classics from the 40-60. And a lot of landscapes that had never been shown before.
