Documentary photographer Chloe Juno’s eclectic project photographing discarded objects on the streets of Brighton.
Over the last eight years I have been busy every day, taking photos of objects that people discard in the centre of Brighton and Hove, East Sussex, England. ‘SOMEONE’S RUBBISH’ is a project that now numbers 2500+ images and it forms a longform photo essay that I’ve completely immersed myself in, because the more I shoot, the more evidence of life I gather, the more fascinating it all becomes.
I upload photos everyday whilst also keeping some unseen. Hunting down the objects people use and discard, building a street museum of now; whilst exploring and looking, I’m thinking about the cost of living in this life and the stories that could be behind each object. All the things we need to use in this world, for play, work, education, health, beauty, food, sex, love, drugs, debts, money, bills, general domestic life.
