Calendar (From the Paperweights Series), 2016, archival inkjet print from 4x5 color negative, 20x25in

For this ongoing project I collect and photograph paperweights. Although it is highly unlikely that any of the objects featured in this series predate the 1950s, they are selected, staged and shot to resemble archeological artefacts in an effort to emphasise their outdatedness and create a tension between strangeness and familiarity.
