ABOUT THE ABANDONED COLLECTION
The purpose of this body of work is to highlight today’s modern “throw-away” society and the excessive desire to have. Consumerism has reached an all-time high in the world. Homes are filled with the best modern electronic equipment, beautiful cars are parked in the garages, and caravans and motorboats are lined up to guarantee an interesting weekend away. These items have a relatively short shelf life, soon they will be traded in for a new model and their journey towards insignificance commences. This series is a collection of things that have passed their “sell-by date”, subjects that have fulfilled their purpose and have now been thrown away only to be forgotten. Earthly items, discarded if you like, “things” brushed aside... once worshipped, idolised and even loved... now simply left ABANDONED. I have photographed a collection of subjects from old cars, caravans, gravestones, barns and houses etc, having tried to capture them as they have been found. From a photography point of view, I have tried to portray the intrinsic beauty of these old abandoned subjects at their height of neglect, by shooting them in very “moody” light, which helps to depict them in a surreal, sanguine sort of manner. Prints are limited to thirty-five copies regardless of the size of reproduction.
