bregazzi: insignificants (February)

other images:

insignificant: "too small or unimportant to be worth consideration"

This is intended to be a year-long project in which I rather optimistically intend to post an image each day (at least for the first week/month) of a found insignificant. This could be a tattered wall, stains, peeling paint, faded tags, the effects of light on a surface, or combinations of any of these; or it could just be something insignificantly "out of the ordinary".

Many of these will be photographs taken in an area I have provisionally called the back-lanes - an area roughly bordered by Western Terrace, Woodlane, the Harbour frontage, and Killigrew Street. The exact location of the back-lanes images will be generalised to "back-lanes". Other images may be given a precise location.

While small objects may be moved, and light/shadow and painted tags are inherently fugitive, large objects can also disappear - the doors in image 5/360 (January) were demolished a week after the photograph was taken.

The project defeated me and ground to halt on 24th February with only 58 images...
