The idea behind The Space Between Time & Memory is that the photographs that represent our most memorable events are sometimes picturesque, postcard snapshots of a moment in time. Yet, our most intense memories of the same event may be of the space just outside of the edge of the picturesque.
The most intense memory is of the water and smooth stones, not the Mackinac Bridge…
…here, it’s the rustling of the pine trees, not the stunning Lake Michigan in the background.
In this image, the contrast of the Chicago skyline and the overpowering wildflower field is most intriguing.
In this image the dots in the water, that are people at the Day Beach, look more like remnants of wood piers from this vantage point.
This in-between space is what I have tried to capture in these images. Each image tells a story of a time and space, though the mystery of memory and how we revisit these moments is what I find most fascinating.
