End of Life
End of Life

End Of Life is a photo series about items that were once used daily, momentarily indispensable to the people that owned them. Even though we have no way of knowing who their owners were, we can imagine that they were part of someone's landscape, in their home and daily life. These objects gathered from an Ontario E-waste facility are tools: they filled a role and performed a function until they either broke or were replaced. This series of images is a final send-off—an obituary of sorts—before these objects are disassembled, shredded, and harvested for materials.
