Description

“What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially.”

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”

Concerned with the transience of youth, time and memory – this series of work aims to explore the relationship we have with our own past. By using old family photographs and projecting them back into the space they were originally taken, I hope to open up a dialogue about how photographs record memory and in some cases actually become the memory itself.
