Pieces of the Mind


Another thing that amazes me about people is you never know what they will collect or what they consider saleable. One of the great adventures in going to markets to take photos is in what you will find that people have put together to offer up for sale. Some of it is quite wonderful and exquisite, others make you ponder the perhaps darker side of the human mind...who wants these broken and left over doll parts, why does someone bother to gather them and offer them to said people? There is an attraction, albeit a bit morbid perhaps. I found myself taking photographs of some of these collections. Maybe it's something in the forlornness of them, maybe they echo the leftover pieces of our childhood, but for me they have become something that I loved making into art.

Here's a favorite piece that seems to fit; Elton John's "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding"....
