I began collecting these baseballs in the winter of 2004-2005. Discovered in the park near my house, they had gone unnoticed by others, sometimes for years, if not decades. Abject, rejected and forlorn, they all hinted at mysterious pasts. Although I knew that one day I would photograph my burgeoning collection, most sat along a shelf in my studio for more than a year before the work started. I finally decided to photograph them with a deep depth of field, revealing, as much as I could, their distinct identities. This is an ongoing project.
