The photographs in “Horizons” illustrate a motion inherent in our memories of backgrounds and landscapes, how a person’s movement through time and space becomes an impression, sometimes captured “on film”. These images consist of layered photographs from different perspectives–the “ghost” image, phantom landscapes, and self-created fantasy. In this art, the photographer proposes what actually is real, and an interpretation of what is real in motion.
Statement for “Horizons and Intersections”
“Intersections” is a series of photographs about the places where people move across one another, and the photographer is like a shade, not in the scene, but photographing the anticipation of movement and change. In “Horizons”, the artist chooses to view the landscape while in motion. So, then, the photographer looks at the physical world and sees shades, or passing shadows, as she changes and moves.
“Horizons” participated in the ACP (Atlanta Celebrates Photography) Festival 2014
“Intersections” continued the series by participating in ACP at the same location in October 2015 thru 2016.
