Collection, 2013

ABOUT

Collection is a group of large format photographs that catalogue and explore objects my dad has compiled over the past twenty years.

Like the cabinet of curiosity popular during Renaissance times, his collection acts as a microcosm of the world, both natural and artificial. Each piece is unique, compelling, and strange. 

In addition to archiving these relics, my work is also an examination of the human tendency to collect. Why do we choose to carry certain items with us? What do our collections say about who we are?
