Today, photography is everywhere in our society, we would struggle to escape it on a day-to-day basis. It is used as a form of communication between artist and an audience; the way it is used to communicate however, is up to the photographer. Is the image a true representation of a scene? Does it document an event? Does the artist manipulate their images to make them speak to viewers in a totally unique way? All of these are attainable trough the art of photography.

The portfolio presented seeks to document a group of individuals. While not containing images of the individuals themselves, this series instead highlights the objects that they collect. By doing this, it is my hope they viewers can learn about the individuals at a deeper level without the influence of their appearance.
