found object (n.)
(objet trouvé fr.)
A found object, in an artistic sense, indicates the use of an object which has not been designed for an artistic purpose, but which exists for another purpose already.
The camera, by its nature, removes context, often leading to disappointing results. The challenge for the photographer is to realize, and take advantage of, this characteristic. In this set of images I hope to fully exploit the camera’s natural tendencies. The goal is to create new ways to look at objects; to discover shapes, colors, patterns, and textures. It is the blending of recognizable and new that I hope you will find interesting.
