The Image of a Place
"The Image of a Place" is part of a larger cycle of works that has unfolded since the death of my father in 2018, far away from home. My father’s passing began as a series of unanswered questions and loose ends - rivers running nowhere, the gap between a lighthouse flash, a haze across the emulsion. Working through subsequent events within a constellation of photographs, objects and words has allowed me to hollow out a space for my grief somewhere at once imagined and real. In conjuring a version of the world where I picture him to be, made in the landscape of the darkroom, I am building my father an ever shifting monument - rock by rock, breath by breath.
