Inserting photographic prints back into the landscape in order to confront the past and examine the present is my recognition of a place that continues to be substantially impactful in my life. Our chosen environments inevitably impact the development of our memories; seeping into daily routines and becoming rooted in our beings. It is not until I left to then return that the unconscious influence of setting was revealed.
Memories are reconfigured, first impressions are altered, and holding onto reality proves difficult. Locale is crucial for recollection because it is where one’s feelings reside. Photography is a medium that is used in order to stage, isolate, and recall memories. However photographs are static and only reveal one aspect of a perceived reality. Utilizing a photograph as recollection is a fragmented visuality.
The process of repeatedly revisiting a place with the intention of making a photograph brings about unexpected revelations. A visual analysis of mundane human routines. After returning once again to these locations, new memories are formed as old memories grow more obscure. This work is my memory reimagined.
