The Layman's Registry of _____.
The Layman's Registry is a project by myself and Libby Bogner created using chance methodologies and the idea of "curating the un-curatable.” For us, this began with collecting things you can't place onto a shelf, such as morals, values and meanings. We asked a diverse group of individuals to take 12 photos on disposable cameras and to categorize each image by significance. The result is a grainy, out of focus, washed out, too dark and sometimes just right collection of moments, objects, places and humans taken by the individuals who have applied meaning to them. We hope that by exploring these images you are able to see a bit of yourself in each one, in turn making connections with people of all ages from the North to the South to the far West and all the way back to the Motor City.
