Everything Fades

2019 - present

I am interested in reflections on one’s childhood memories through adult eyes. At the start of this photography project my instinct was to explore the small Midwest town that was my childhood home. Without access to the house I found the surrounding town and landscape felt foreign. Inspired by Nancy Rexroth’s photography project Iowa, I let impulses of memory guide me as I photographed objects and spaces with a digital point and shoot camera. 

Change is often slow and unnoticed until it suddenly feels permanent and inevitable. Reflecting on this idea, I found beauty in things that were changing, as we all are changing. Everything Fades presents a poetic narrative that references a bygone time in my own life. I enjoy how photographs abstractly tied to my own childhood memories may also address collective ideas of change, home, and loss.
