I was invited to participate in The Hotel Project - a group show curated by Diane Dever, who asked seven photographers to respond the historic hotels of Folkestone.
Lost and Found is a series of photographs of the lost property that I discovered in each hotel. The objects, which range from old hats to underwear and jewellery to children’s toys are in transition, neither with their owners, yet not quite lost as they have been stored at the hotels in boxes or on shelves, sometimes for years.
Finding, selecting and carefully photographing these objects reinstates them to something of value again and in some way reclaims them.
The Hotels Project exhibted as part of the 2011 Fringe Festival at Georges House Gallery in Folkestone, UK.
