Relics: Visual History of a Time Long Gone
As the digital age continues to dominate our world, the days of typewriters and rotary dial phones are moving further and further into oblivion. In honor of a more simple time, artist Robert Moran created the series Relics. For each image, he isolated old fashioned objects and documented them as a type of visual record.
Each object holds so many memories and so much history, and Moran says, “The relics helped people through dark nights and hot summers; offered medicinal and musical relief. In that way, they and all the objects we have used, loved, and discarded shape the character and spirit of our society.”
