Everyday Objects

Photography & Print Design

The presented objects have been sourced exclusively from supermarket shelves or similarly accessible shops. They were selected by a group of individuals who have also provided written critiques about their chosen items.

My task was to catalogue the selected objects, including their written critiques, resulting in an exhibition of 20 prints that championed those items through a celebration of their packaging’s most communicative colors.
