In 2015, Schonberger conducted a series of interviews with a retired Detroit Police Officer in their home just outside of Detroit, MI. The officer granted him permission to photograph their collections of objects and images they saved during their time on the police force. These extracts consisted of personal photographs, found and confiscated images, paraphernalia, homemade weapons, newspaper clippings, tools, awards, signage, and garments. These images are an effort to augment and make sense of a deeply personal and fragmented archive.
