To Be Of Use

"In To Be Of Use, Nolan removes the traditional constructs of the portrait photograph, leaving only the detritus of human existence, a symbolic gesture of our own scars and cracks, and the very elements that make up a human life. Photographs of bottle tops become suggestions of a human presence and a celebration of imperfection...Through these overlooked objects, Nolan allows the viewers to reconsider the way we see the world around us, finding a sacredness in the broken, the banal and the abandoned."

- Lauren Tomczak
