FAMILIA MEMORABILIS 2012-2013
In the new series Familia Memorabilis challenge the viewer with a paradigm shift between past and
present,offering an otherworldly experience of
reality, which would have normally
been invisible to an audience.
My childhood family photos are a testament to the multitude experiences I lived and shared. My background, emotions, self-identity, aesthetic values and culture are influential elements; the psychological connection to the past, which it represents.
Photography as a medium has its own unique authority, confirming a reflection of our own approaching mortality. It arrests the flow of 'real time', so it continually presents us with an experience of the past.
My new series preserves the moment, revealing ourselves with an awareness of time discontinuity: a paradox of death within the photographic visual image.
