Home for the Lost
Home for the Lost is a series of photographs based on a place called Digbeth. This project is personal as I have grown up near to this town and I've seen it deteriorate over time. I have focused on four different ideas that interrelate physically, metaphorically and visually to create a series that focuses on urban decay. I'm interested in the line and form of the isolated buildings and abandoned objects that make up this area. These have been subjected to natural decay and human interaction. I have also collected abandoned objects, and photographed them in the studio, isolating them, and focusing on their degraded qualities. I have also buried photographs of Digbeth which act as a metaphor for economic and social collapse.
