I name this series of photos “Abandoned dreams”
We all buy something with some dreams,hope and expectations. •
A new television, a new cupboard, a new toy etc.
Some of us saves money for quite sometime to have a major purchase of something, and we treasure it. That object may accompany us through different stages of life - high school, university and work life - and these objects all have a memory attached to it. •
My grandma used to tell me that owning a t.v. during her time was so rare and they manage to own one, the first family in the neighbourhood. She took a few months to save and bought it.
The television, cupboard, sofa, flowers, bed and toys in these series must have some meanings attached to them when they were bought.
What made them to discard it away? is it that they have new better ones? Or simply they just don’t want it anymore. Why buy if we will eventually throw them at the end? •
I’m asking questions which are weird, but these questions haunt me when I walk the stairs of this old apartment.
