Whether images or objects, collecting often forms the foundation of the work I make. What’s more, the things I collect often have little, if any, real value or worth. Leftovers, detritus, the unloved, and other odds and ends draw my attention. On their own, they have little interest but when brought together they gain meaning. Prospector shines the light on collecting through my own projects, the collections of others, and through photographic typologies I’ve assembled.
