The tried and true mantra of “show don’t tell” encourages filmmakers to form narratives which rely less on explicit exposition and more on minute details. In his pursuit of recreating cult movie posters, photographic artist Jordan Bolton focuses on the belongings and settings of a handful of iconic films.
Simply titled Objects, Bolton's series was inspired by the Museum of Broken Relationships, which exhibited a similar layout of curios and knick-knacks. In the case of Objects, orderly grids line prop pieces up into what look like exploded 3D photo albums. Often composed of simple products like paper, paint, and foam, just one of Jordan Bolton’s posters can include over 100 objects.
