Abandoned Love

Abandoned Love Abandoned Love
Abandoned Love is a participatory photo series created by Columbus-based photographer and digital artist Peyton Fulbord. Through her personal Tumblr account Peyton asked her followers to send her phrases from their diary, text messages, and anything else they personally have written in their own words.

I decided to use only the phrases that focused on the relationship between love and melancholy because I wanted to diverge from the usual happy, celebratory phrases on banners by using sad, more realistic phrases.

After sorting all the messages she received into categories Peyton realized that love was the main subject of majority of the quotes / mesages. Using spray paint, card stocks and string, she then hung the banners she created up on various abandoned buildings to portray the same kind off distress and abandonment as the quotes expressed.
