Fragments Of The Black Forest
is an investigative still-life series focussing upon the abandoned items I found while hiking in the Black Forest region of Germany. The items include a large transparent bag of medication, a page from a worn-out passport, coffee stained photographs, expired credit cards, a poem as well as other keepsakes. Items that lead me on a journey to understand more about them and their owner; had they toppled off a car? Or were they dumped there? Or something more sinister? Each photograph is accompanied by a landscape or another piece of the mystery; a catalyst for our imagination.
