Preschool Pocket Treasures is a photographic archive of the tiny magical objects found stuffed in the pockets of my son after each day at preschool. I have always been drawn to photography’s capacity to suspend moments of transition and change. These occasions are often overlooked or forgotten, left only to be sensed when a memory is triggered.
This project was born out of a desire to capture the magical moments of his boyhood and his development as he transitions from a toddler into a little boy; creating a visual journal of this chapter.
I photographed the objects on our kitchen table at the end of each day.
