Of Those We’ve Lost

Of Those We’ve Lost (2017)

Of Those We’ve Lost is a series of cyanotype portraits of those who have passed. Photos were submitted via social media and then turned into cyanotypes harnessing the power of the desert sun in Joshua Tree, CA. The finished portraits produced on heavyweight watercolor paper were mailed to those who submitted their images, trading the intangible for the tangible. The project confronts the coldness of digital photography especially in consideration of something as intimate as the loss of human life replacing it with the manifestation of palpable imagery produced through and imbued with light from Earth’s atmosphere.
