Abandoned Thoughts #3, 2016
Every photograph tells a story, but what of the abandoned charity shop finds?
Who were these people, why have they been forgotten and discarded, and how do we relate to them?
Each found photograph evokes a certain sadness; feelings and thoughts of nostalgic despair which the artist has overlaid to encourage an unseen narrative.
Bleaching causes a cleansing but in photography is causes destruction; a removal of identity, more towards forgetting. They become less personal to their previous owners and more relatable by all.
