Lot Essay

'I do not want to give these images explanations: descriptions by the finder about how and where they were found, or guesses as to what stories they might or might not tell. I want them to keep the silence of the fleamarket; the silence they had when I found them; the silence of the lost object. (T. Dean, quoted at http://www.frithstreetgallery.com/shows/view/floh/).
