Missing Persons...


This is an assignment I just found that I did in my first year of University (2009), it feels like a lifetime ago. It was a themed set of photographs and we could choose whatever subject we wanted.

I chose shoes, typical me! I used the shoes as a symbol, a symbol of abandonment, ultimately to represent the overall theme of missing persons. The dark low saturated images are depressing and there is nothing life like about them! I placed different types of shoes in different environments (e.g. toddlers shoes in a playground) to make the audience question where the owner is and why their shoes have been left behind, what has happened to them?
