Beauty in the Disregarded




 

Beauty in the Disregarded is a theme I have been exploring for a number of years. Found objects fascinate me - whether second hand (from charity shops and car boot sales) or literally picked up from the street or beach.  I have taken photographs of many of the curious items I have collected over the past few years.  I am interested in the histories and narratives locked within, the sense of nostalgia and fondness when looking at them.  These things are the overflow of a society of excess. They have been rejected, 
overlooked, discarded as worthless. Whether from the murky depths of junk store oblivion or from the gutter of urban climes, I resurrect these items and breathe in them new life.
