Loss Upon Return
When we return to a place, we inevitably cover the same piece of ground, but each step is nonetheless a unique movement. When I return to my homeland, I carry with me photographic images of this location that I have made before. These images are made to interact with the ground, and it is this interaction that makes the images different, a different engagement, a different journey. This work is about the return and the trace of that return but is also about the sense of loss, about a time that has passed. This past, this loss, is reflected in the image itself as it degrades to various degrees depending on the topography of the location of its original conception.
