I consider myself an observer of our environment. I began by capturing people, objects and apparently banal scenes through a medium format analogue camera. In analysing the negatives, some talked to me, and this project was born. I continued to take photographs of the isolated, solitary people and objects who are becoming obsolete, unnoticed. Left behind and forgotten. This project honours them, those who are the foundations of who we are today. I speak about a world which forgets its values of time, patience and care, to reflect the importance of the past and where we come from. I decided to silver gelatine print these photographs; in its power and delicate process, it enhances the values I wish to commemorate.
