I photograph pictures within the interior spaces of my relatives’ homes. The pictures within pictures accentuate the use of photography in the construction of idealized family histories. The interiors are stark, more like model homes than lived-in spaces, and the portraits serve as counterweights to the nearly empty rooms. Each interior functions like a memory palace where spatial relationships establish a system for recalling content. Transitional markers like doors, windows, curtains, vents and frames enact the process of memory. Specifically, they emulate the barriers and passageways the mind unlocks in order to evoke the past. Mixing natural and artificial light heightens this experience, casting pastels into otherwise white spaces.
