Even in the age of technology, when images can be searched and found at a moment’s notice, there are pictures that are forgotten. Greg Trout’s collages bring back the lost and give the images a new purpose.  There are sets of images overlapping one another, which create a narrative when placed together.
 
Trout relates to projection artist, Ross Ashton.  In Ashton’s series Birmingham Light Night, he projects Pre-Raphaelite paintings onto old buildings in Birmingham.  Ashton was able to show residents forgotten paintings and display them in a new fashion.  Trout, although working in paper collage, re-assembles forgotten photographs and exhibits them in a new context.
