Many people would like to think they have left their mark on this earth in some way, not to be forgotten. This may come from someone's great achievements, for others though a simple mark to show 'I was here' may be enough. Mark making is at the heart of art itself, it accentuates the individual, shows their characteristics, a symbol of self. Most of these marks are anonymous and will leave no lasting impression - they have a limited lifespan before they are painted over or the weather takes its toll. By recording these marks with my camera I am creating new memorials that will live on.
