recollections

Recollections is a series of works which began in 2007 and continues through today. The work is an examination of my personal memories and their relationship to photography, more specifically, the family snapshot.

In examining family snapshots from my childhood I began to realize how the memories of my life are in many ways the memories of specific images. The iconic image from the family photo album is much more vivid in my mind than the actual details of specific events. The documentation of an event, place or time,  supersedes or displaces the recollection of the actual event, place or time.
