FORGOTTEN REMINDERS

Forgotten Reminders was an unexpected photo project that presented itself to me. Outside of a local Meijer, there is a giant, seldom seen slope littered with trash. In an effort to give back, I decided to attempt to collect the recyclable items to make composed scanograms. While I was there, a reoccuring theme was finding grocery shopping and/or to-do lists. It says a lot about our society for someone to take their time in writing out a thoughtful shopping list, just to carelessly toss it on the ground afterwards or lose it outside. This series is meant to both make a statement about the carelessness of society, and take a voyeuristic peek inside the creation of grocery lists.
