T.H.T.K - Too Hard To Keep. Photographer Collects Photos That Are Too Upsetting To Keep.

Chicago-based artist, Jason Lazarus, 39, is asking members of the public to send him images they just can’t live with before they delete them or instead of binning them – with no explanation attached.

It makes for an intriguing and harrowing display.

‘I had the idea for the archive when reflecting on the charge or anxiety holding on to certain photographs brought me. I started asking friends and friends of friends if they had photographs too hard to keep, and the response was powerful - the project started to grow itself.

‘It often didn't need much explanation, people got it.’
