The Poundshop SpectrumAfter becoming a dad 5 years ago, Chris's exposure to brightly coloured plastic went from 0 to somewhere approaching 100! The amount of cheap, moulded plastic, “throwaway” toys out there (and slowly building up in his house) was a real eye opener and something he knew he wanted to document.
About a year or so ago during a trip to the shops with his son, he popped into Poundland. It was his son's first visit and armed with a shiny £1 coin he excitedly roamed the aisles…
The brightly coloured toy aisle was obviously the one that most caught his attention, and Chris's, and after this and many subsequent visits Chris decided to start documenting some of the things that ended up coming home.
This project is ongoing (probably until around the time his kids have outgrown it…)
