Statement of Intent

Photographing things of little consequence

So many items of domestic and industrial origins are discarded through having outlived their useful purpose or are no longer used for their original purpose having been damaged. Photographers find a fascination with things that are no longer being used or cared for. The reasons why someone apparently just decided to leave everything and walk away intrigues the viewer and stirs the photographer’s imagination. Some of these items wouldn’t get a second glance, but there could be, and often is, virtue in taking a photograph of some piece of waste material or detritus.

I have assembled a group of photographs of “found still life” objects and to enhance their appearance I have applied a lighting technique to simulate a directional source of light. These photographs have been framed carefully and treated post camera to show the best or slightly different appearance by means of highlighting or shading and some colour saturation when required. The viewer’s attention will be focused on the object and he/she can consider the story of how the object arrived at this state.
