“Microwave with Orange” – from a recent hoarding documentation in 2014.
You may recall way back in 2011 I documented a cat hoarder’s house and previously presented it here on this site as a project titled “Hoarder House”. After a few years, I assumed that it had a limited scope, so I took the project down from the site. Then, in March of 2014, I had another opportunity to document a different cat hoarder’s house. This environment was quite different in many ways, and yet there were strange similarities and the images seemed to speak to a much more complex sociological phenomenon. I had to refrain from publishing the photos until the related court case was settled a few months ago, but now I’m beginning to combine the photos into a single ongoing project. I’m still editing the photos, and I anticipate the continuing opportunity to document these types of environments over the next few years, but in the meantime I published a quick edit of the project in one of my Flickr albums. Feel free to take a peek and shoot me an email if you have any thoughts or questions about this project – I’d love to hear from you!
