Sometimes I get so wrapped up in talking about everyone else's amazing art that I forget about my own. Here is some work from an ongoing project.
Revisit is a project I worked on as my MFA thesis and through the last year. For more than 2 years I have been visiting locations originally photographed by the FSA photographers of the 1930s and 40s. In this rephotography process, I am investigating our cultural history- discovering and tracking the root of many cultural norms and societal trends. I am viewing this country through the eyes of history (these photographs) and interpreting my experience through a new image.
As I have said, I am going to California next week where I will photograph a bit more and then put this project to rest for a while. It has been a long two years but I realize now that I need to move on and come to new ways to express my ideas about the cultural memory within our landscape. Lots to think about.
