Roaming. Paris is Lost.

Once black and white, lost posters have embraced cheap inkjet technology to breathe new life into lost dogs, cats, birds and others through the use of glorious colour. The posters come into their own after a downpour, when colours run, merge and fade to produce watercolour-like paintings. Gracing light and power poles around the world, these little works of art are reminders of how quickly things change. The little fellow above is called Paris, and depending on how you look at it, is lost or on an adventure somewhere in the Bondi Road area. Let's hope owner and pet have been reunited. In the meantime, Erik Brunetti's collection of lost posters continues to charm many years on.
