Things People Carry is a photography and audio project exploring the things we carry along with us from childhood -- the stuffed animals, bears, dolls, toys, and mementoes we treasure long into adulthood. These objects are often hidden in trunks, boxes, or closets, but they're seldom forgotten.
WHY DO SO many of our treasured objects
have little to no monetary value?
I take these special items out of the darkness and into the light. Through photography and audio recordings, I capture their beauty. I explore why we carry things for so long, what these objects mean to us, and what memories they evoke.
