Typically an item of cultural or historical interest. It is often said you can judge a person's character by the company one keeps, or the ingredients of one's refrigerator, or one's choice in fashion. The subjects come from either borrowed or personal items from my collection of ephemera. I am sure they give rise to the imagination of any armchair psychiatrist who happens to view them in this context.

These are camera-less images, made by placing the subject on a flatbed scanner. The backgrounds reference the early hand-made photographs where a light sensitive emulsion is brushed onto a receptor sheet which is then exposed to UV light to make an image.
