24-61a (Damaged Goods) © Greg Ruffing

Photographer Greg Ruffing’s series Damaged Goods considers the photograph as object, examining the immaterial value of an item implicated in the recording of our personal histories yet so easily (or accidentally) disposed of. When enlarged these images take on abstract qualities, as Ruffing points out like “pointillist paintings… or topographical map forms.”

Ruffing’s work has been published in The New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones and TIME Magazine just to list a few.
