"What Gets Left Behind" is a photographic series by Seattle photographer and filmmaker Tyler Coray. Original work created for his senior thesis and BFA Exhibition at Cornish College of the Arts.

Statement: This series is an exploration of found objects and isolated incidents throughout Seattle and it's surrounding areas. As all things head toward complete deterioration, what I’m documenting are the phases in between. Textures and materials become amalgamated with the environment, objects get re-contextualized, and through their displacement they continually metamorphosize into something new. Formally, I'm looking at how these occurrences influence the environment in which they are found, based on color relationships and physical qualities.

My work is influenced by entropy and its irreversibility. I find myself most interested in how these encounters exist beyond my moments with them. While these photographs depict ephemerality, what gets left behind continues on in new forms.
