guy batey; the melancholy of objects

what is it that attracts us to photograph found objects? it seems an obsession that photographers can´t leave behind including myself. guy batey´s proposal is one more in the long list.

"The Melancholy of Objects is a series of portraits of the objects I've found lost or discarded on the streets of Southwark in south-east London where I live.Some of these objects seem to talk to me, and the photographs are my reply".
