← Return to From Afar: 2020 Senior Art Exhibition
Here Forever is a photographic series exploring themes of family and identity through a look into the domestic interiors and Texas sprawl-scapes inhabited by myself and my parents. It is the product of an unexpected and all-consuming moment of intimacy mandated by a global pandemic. Through the incorporation of animal remains as a sort of memento mori, the work grapples with the passage of time and the acceptance of loved ones getting older. In the same way that their atmospheres fluctuate between natural sunlight and the more artificial flash, these images reside in an ambiguous region between domestic observations and staged vignettes.
