Afterimages, 2021
dye sublimation prints mounted on steel bar, printed text
19‘ installation

“Afterimages” is a series of digital photographs and personal note entries that document my personal experience with loss. Made between November 2019 and April 2021, the images depict various areas throughout my family home and range from plain, detached observation of its contents to the lyrical or metaphorical. The sequence, a chronology more or less, compresses the loss of both parents and its emotional repercussions into one single stream of visual and textual information.
