Don’t Leave Me This Way

  • August 2013

The idea started with taking photographs of litter as it is in the street. Some of the photographs have an innate wit and unexpected beauty so I started thinking of ways to make them represent their subject in a more realistic manner.

I printed the photographs as postcards, stamped and self-addressed and littered them in the streets of London. In addition to transforming the image of litter into litter – litterally!- I was also interested in finding out how many of those littered letters would be noticed, picked up and posted back.

Only eight littered postcards made it back out of 30.
