Photographs are bound up with our desire to possess knowledge about the world. This work aims to challenge people's perceptions on the role of contemporary photography and explore the visible relationship between object and photograph. These found objects have been used for their intended purpose then discarded where they become unwanted, overlooked and almost non-existent. Through the mechanical process of photography these objects are given a new visual appearance as a two-dimensional surface where the inner truth of the object is lost to a system of un-fixed meanings. I am interested in creating ambiguous images that challenge photography's ability to renew existing objects whilst questioning their significance and suggesting the possibility for an external meaning beyond the visual field.
