Threnody
Limited edition prints.
In her new body of work, Threnody, the portraits of hundreds of souls have been captured from tombstones in graveyards across Europe. In a circuitous process, each image has been transformed from the found photographic portrait through alternate layers of photography, projection, recaptured from the lens of a Camera Obscura, from there back to photography and finally to print. The resulting images challenge a traditional idea of photography as a faithful record of reality, and instead explore the nature of perception and memory. They expose a reminder of our fleeting corporeal existence on earth, the magnitude of eternity and the unimaginable inevitability of death and loss.
The construction and merging of new layers results in mysterious dislocated images that somehow float one-step removed from the picture surface. If the camera is a tool for revelation, the essence of these images has been penetrated, interrogated and excavated to the very core of their being.
