Lost Gloves

For the better part of my time living in New York City, I’ve photographed lost gloves. I’ve always been struck by their prevalence, sometimes coming upon multiple gloves during a commute home. Photographing soon expanded to an annual finders competition amongst friends, and somewhere along the way I started to pick them up, amassing nearly 700 gloves in the process.

Having recently lost two of my own gloves, I’ve grown to be more selective with the ones I pick up. I know how frustrating and disappointing it can be when you retrace your steps, only to return home empty-handed. So If a glove looks like a fresh loss, I let it be.
