Medium: Photography, Mixed Media
Silence investigates the theories and intentions of sharing relationships with archival histories. After unearthing entry to a personal anthology of photographs I was captivated by the magnetism that lie encapsulated upon each printed memoir. Beside familial relatives, narratives led to flourished ideologies. Senses inspired by the histories told bestowed a compelling energy which accompanied me toward this study. Observations and realities led me to uncover depths of self-reflection.
Methodologies achieved within the observations of these relics existed profoundly and left behind a sense of spiritual and psychological enlightenment. Through portraits and ‘everyday snapshots’ lay discoveries in which had not presented themselves formerly. Inspired by the writings of Barthes and the work of Stezaker, this body is a study of photographic existence and the interconnections in which we share with our recorded family histories as beings who seek for a perception of identity.
