Tropical Trophy, Village of Downers Grove, 2008

Photo by Leilani Wertens. Wertens is a second year graduate student in photography at Columbia College Chicago, and this image is from a series on estate sales called “Forget Me Not.” In a statement about the project, Wertens writes:

“At estate sales, treasure seekers encounter once-beloved personal and utilitarian objects that lose their original meaning when stripped of their context. Through my arrangement of the spaces and possessions found in each home, I counteract the impersonal nature of an estate sale and the way it distances us from death.”
