There are things we see every day in our urban space that are over-looked. Places so irrelevant to us they almost don’t even exist. Scenes that emerge either from natural debilitation over time, or from intended actions, without a purpose or reason, just are. Fuzzy, unimportant shapes in our peripheral vision that we walk past in a rush, or briefly viewed through the bus window. These are things that are seen but not registered: A poster advertisement scrunched up into wad of paper, still sitting in the glass case display. Or a missing tile of marble from the corner entrance of a garage, exposing the concrete plaster. These sceneries are what people might call trivial or boring, with no brilliance. Although they have no incredible importance, they still have a physical place in our community, existing either temporarily or momentarily. Even though they are not registered visually or mentally by an individual, this does not make them nonexistant, so why not acknowledge them?

These images are the acknowledgement of these places and things. In this ongoing series, an emphasis is put on architectural and sculptural particularities found on the streets of Paris. Focusing on untouched compositions, these structures raise questions and ideas about intent, purpose, and time. Confining these scenes within the frame, and presenting related found objects, brings attention to things that are meaningless or overlooked, giving them a purpose. Photographing these spectacles is both acknowledging and documenting them.
