With a couple of weeks off work, I’m so glad I got round to starting a new photography project that’s been rattling around my brain for a while. It’s called His Collections: a project displaying my boyfriend’s small collections of “stuff”. Whether they’re useful, sentimental or simply hoarding.
I wanted to use the photographs as a way to build up a character profile without resorting to portraiture. They’re kind of like a puzzle to help you figure out what someone’s personality, appearance and preferences are without meeting them face to face. It’s still early days but I’ve shared a few images below of compositions I’ve taken so far.
Do you have any strange collections?
