I'm elated to be included amongst so many talented photographers in the Memory exhibition at the Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kansas. It will be running from February 23rd through March 16th, with an opening on February 23rd from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. To see the work in the exhibition, please click here.
Our current state of awareness is deeply influenced by our experiences, interpretations and memories of the past. These memories shape our stories, our personal histories and identities. Photography is intrinsically a long-standing tool for capturing moments, and the medium has the uncanny ability to recall times that possibly otherwise would have been forgotten. The act of observation and using the camera as a keepsake box to preserve our histories is a unique characteristic of the medium. The photographic works which encompass this exhibition explore the notion of memory through intimate expressions of personal histories, courageously expressed recollections, and a range of experiences.
