Environmental Memory

This new group of work is an off-shoot from my project Deep Looking sharing the same methodology of rephotographing hand-held vintage photographs with my iPhone to capture imagery. These images are not digitally manipulated but are captured directly from my iPhone. However, the question is different with this project.

As I was working on Deep Looking, I noticed how different the landscape felt in the vintage images to the landscape experienced in my daily walks. And with so many extreme weather events happening, I began to wonder what it would be to only have memories of our environment if we fail to stop global warming? These images simulate memory, anticipating what this kind of memory would look like if such a devastating loss were to occur. This series is printed with archival pigment inks on A2 sized Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl 320gsm.
