I sometimes glimpse another set of memories

I sometimes glimpse another set of memories evokes a sense of moving between memories of times and places outside of oneself and an internal mental space of uncertainty and contemplation. The grainy and out of focus nature of the photographs hides the specificity of the landscapes these images depict, and creates spaces of conflict that feel simultaneously familiar and unknown – like memories barely remembered. The grey scale tones and textures provide spaces to consider the previous image and transition to the next landscape moment, like static between channels on old television sets. Edition of 20.
