Measuring 24x31 inches in size, this is an abstract still life color photograph.
Brooke says "During the limited travel of the pandemic lockdown I decided to photograph in the streets of my neighborhood. My subject was trash, the proliferation of the discarded plastic bottles, cans, gloves, masks, and other general detritus in the gutters. These discarded items once serving a purpose were now abandoned, transforming through the process of destruction, decay, and oblivion. I was initially depressed and the weather of overcast and rainy days intensified these feelings. But it also created a sense of timelessness, a suspension of reality that inspired my imagination. As I photographed I found humor and irony in their mortality and beauty in small things."
