My project began close to home, by exploring the street where I live. On and around my street are many abandoned objects – mattresses, bath tubs, toilets, bricks, flip flops… and photographing these objects became a personal exploration of our wasteful consumer culture. I have used photography to examine how we can repurpose and reimagine these discarded items, by treating them as sculptural elements. In this way I hope to shift our societal perception of consumption, consideration and waste.
