To Remember

Through physical processes such as burning film and prints, running paper prints underwater, printing and rephotographing, I explored one of my own biggest fears, dementia and memory loss. The physicality of analog photography lends itself well to the portrayal of memory loss as film deteriorates over time just like the memories of a person suffering with dementia. Memories of people seem to blur or fade, events are forgotten, and the faces of loved ones or even yourself seem unrecognizable. The brain cells just can’t communicate with each other anymore and soon begin to forget. I photograph to remember.
