Over The Wall
Over the Wall is a collection of photographs featuring items thrown over the rear wall into the garden of a private house. The work seeks to investigate the idiom that one man's trash is another man's treasure. It explores notions of possession while examining the beauty in the discarded. The work surveys change of ownership alongside change of use. The articles have been removed from their innate surroundings and photographed in clinical studio conditions to transform them from pieces of rubbish to items of beauty. The presentation of the images gives a knowing nod to proponents of Pop Art.
