Abandoned Love.

Thursday, May 14, 2015

New POV to come Saturday; in the meantime: shots from Abandoned Love, a series by 20-year-old photographer Peyton Fulford. Fulford turns snippets from anonymous journal entries and text messages (submitted to her from participants around the world) into spray-painted banners that she posts on abandoned buildings in Columbus, Georgia.

"I sorted all of the messages into categories, and realized that love was the main subject of the majority of the quotes," she writes. "Ultimately I wanted this project to bring light to...feelings that are usually shared privately, behind closed doors."

See more at Abandoned Love. See also: Things I Told the Internet, But Didn't Tell My Mom, a wonderful (and similar) project by Anna Ladd.

Shoko! I haven't been to your blog lately, but I just had to come comment. I just got my latest Uppercase mag in the mail and saw that you're a contributor. :) So great! It's one of my favorites. I'm looking forward to seeing what you contributed. Have a great day!

I've thought or felt so many of these things at some point in time. Somehow, anything in banner form makes even the hardest emotions seem a little less lonely. Thank you so much for sharing this.
