On the Sea Stands a Rock
On the Sea Stands a Rock stems from a recent discovery of both familial historical archives and multiple collections of vernacular images from unknown origins. This work forms a project that uses various techniques to explore the idea of a photograph existing as a physical object. My own photographs respond to the found imagery running throughout the series, creating a varied and experimental flow of works that seek to address and define my interpretation of the photographic object. This body of work examines and breaks down the idea of the materiality and the photograph. By doing so, I hope to create new ways of engaging with the physical print, allowing the viewer to question how images are constructed and consumed.
