Admitting vast post-consumer waste as modern society’s pattern, the essence of transient is reflected upon the degrees of personal attachment/memories to things. This project wishes to capsule the moments of farewell to mundane objects in the illusion of the past-present-future. “Tales of abandonment” explores the boundary of documentary and editorial photography to suggest intersecting narratives. Black and white is used to deliver the stories in cinematic setting with a touch of melancholic spirit. The overlapping of memories with reality is visualized by resurrecting junkie items as “in-use” in domestic activity, in contrast with the context of abandonment.
