Building Blocks, 2018

 These digital collages incorporate vernacular photographs of strangers that are obscured by color as a way to explore themes of personhood and the vulnerability that comes with the wish to be remembered. Working with these images not only helps me establish a connection with the past but allows me to honor the images and provide them a space in which to be remembered. I accomplish this through combining the dated photographs with digital processes, making them “relevant” and engaging to the contemporary viewer.
