Blackburn, like most places, has a problem with litter, fly tipping and abandoned objects that are no longer needed. I started this project when I started to notice items in beautiful natural places that should not be there: lost gloves, toys and builders materials. After including one or two of these objects, I started to become interested in how things become lost or abandoned. What chain or events led up to the abandonment? Who did the lost objects belong to? This series of photographs examines things that have been misplaced. Some are thrown away, some are lost and some have a new function other than what they were invented for. They are all misplaced.
