Just Shy of Nostalgia
So much of our lives today concern the digital image: how we communicate, store memories, share experiences and absorb information. The abundance and immediacy of today’s photography is shaping how we view what is around us. The following works are an examination of imagery in our digital world and the technology that filters it. The source images for each project are photographs of myself, but all are stripped of their identity. Through technical processes that reference the history of photography and reproduction of images, my hand is brought back into the role of creation. Each project presents these digital photographs with a new life in the physical world, while critiquing the technology and processes that hold them back.
