When I wander around cities that I have not visited before, my thoughts get entangled with details that skip my eyes even in my hometowns. And it is at that moment when I embark on an intense journey of observation. Walking in the streets of Europe as a newcomer, my eyes began to follow objects that seemed left behind. Belongings which seemed to have been forgotten on streets. In reflection, I discovered, beneath this returning occurrence, a mutual condition between myself and my photograph subjects; a sense of displacement and lack of belonging. In the form of an ever-growing archive, the project has become a collective portrait of outcast often melancholic artefacts. My irrational solidarity with these objects has become the driving force of a worldwide search for belongings which appear misplaced, disowned or positioned out of sight.
