Age of Objects

Objects live. They are born, mature, age and die. Unfortunately, our interest in objects is concentrated on the first terms of their lives. Once the newness has worn off, we loose interest. The older they get, the less we bother. We don’t pay them any notice, we forget their presence. Yet, aging objects can possess an unsuspected richness . This is what I try to showcase in this project. The patina acquired over the years, the marks of wear left by constant use, scars that bear witness to mishaps, these are all chapters in the history of objects written in a rich visual vocabulary that I try to express photographically either by contrasting the old with the new or by highlighting the intricate textures engraved by the inexorable march of time.
