In this body of work photographer Robert Moran has pointed his lens at “common objects that are past their prime.”

In an interview with curator and Executive Director of the Griffin Museum of Photography, Paula Tognarelli, Moran said, “Once relied upon, they have been forgotten or discarded. I photographed each item singly in order to reveal its individual essence.”

“Cracks and scuffs of hard use. Mended hinges. Patches worn smooth by frequent polishing”

Moran adds, “I came to appreciate how often function dictates form, and how frequently the form is right.”

Moran stated in an interview with exhibit curator and Executive Director of the Griffin Museum of Photography, Paula Tognarelli,

“They’ve been used in homes, offices, a school gym, and taken on house calls by a country doctor,” Moran says. “All of them have stories.”

Moran’s work has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. His photographs are included in private collections in the U.S., as well as in Australia and Europe. His award-winning photographs have recently been published in The Photo Review, Shots Magazine, and B&W + Color Magazine.
