This series was inspired by the discovery of a 1960’s vacation photo album which I inherited after the passing of a close friend of our  family.
In this series, I hope to explore the passing of time and it’s effect on the human memory as well as the paper, emulsion, and chemistry of the materials that photographic prints consist of.

Our perceptions of both time and memory are relative only to our personal experiences, and therefore in a constant state of flux. These paintings are simple meditations on this concept rather than an attempt to capture or freeze any particular moment or memory in time.

To learn more about the photo album, and the thoughts and reflections that have driven me to start this series, read my earlier blog post of the same title, “Other People’s Memories.”
