“I see so much potential in audio-driven, long-form storytelling.”

Wesley Lindamood, Designer and Developer, to NPR

“Discover a black-and-white era in full color,” says the tagline at the beginning of Lost and Found, drawing its audience into a multimedia photo essay showcasing the work of amateur photographer Charles Cushman (1896-1972), one of the first people to experiment with color film. Producer Claire O’Neill supplements Cushman’s photographs with interviews with photography curators and historians. The result is radio journalism re-imagined for the web. Audio drives the online experience, giving the story a narrative arc. The visual field is open to audience manipulation. Web visitors can browse Cushman’s photographs or experience them as an auto-play slideshow.
