IN MEMORIUM

2006

Archival Digital Prints from Scanograms

 

The significant relationships and personal associations we form with the world surrounding us can also exist in the simplest of objects. These flowers, collected from the ground of a local cemetery, only have value when on the final resting site of a loved one. Beforehand, they are cheap, plastic and of little importance; after the wind carries them away from their intended location, they become litter. By documenting them for all time through photography, they inherit a level of subjective importance, regardless of quality or previous purpose.

Each flower in this series is dedicated to a family ancestor who has passed.
