This work has been selected from an ongoing series, Leisure Seizure.
Theres a lot of weird stuff out there, some of the objects were created to promote long gone businesses, abandoned building projects or doomed theme parks. Some of it is simply an act of whimsy.
I see my job in this mess as a collector, a preserver, but also my role is to try to emphasis the presence of these objects or places … So forget about the truth in fotos crap, I’m no documentarian. I’m there to isolate the object, either pulling it out of its context or adding a piece of text that skews one’s understanding of what your seeing. I place these images on a pedestal, albeit with a mild but gentle sense of irony.
This body of work deals with a passion for the weird.
