For as long as he can remember Bill has collected things; old fire extinguishers, stuffed toys, abandoned hair dryers, porcelain figurines, odd bits of metal. Scavenged from the hedgerows and kerbsides; they are the flotsam and jetsam of modern life.

His studio in Suffolk is crammed full of his discovered treasures, each one carefully labelled and stored in his museum of curios. The artefacts filling the shelves and cupboards are random. Each object has been chosen on a whim, a response to colour or shape or texture and most importantly its potential to be remade and refashioned into something else. The recent work "Relics" is a series of images of Bill's curios preserved by the camera as studies in his cabinet of curiosities.

Relics by photographer Bill Jackson

As a final twist Bill presents each printed photograph as discreet objects themselves. His "Relics" are all framed within two pieces of glass mimicking the idea of dissection slides.
