Images of the past possess the ability to be deeply sentimental to the owner or the initial creator, but can be simultaneously barren of emotional attachment to any other viewer. I’m exploring the relationship an outsider experiences to images possessing personal importance to a stranger-- this curiously disconnected emotional response to documented proof of an anonymous life. Through archiving and reproducing found images I seek to underline this deformed sense of understanding the past. I reproduce images using different methods of print, and then directly apply pigment to the reproduced image. Modifying what has already been established as history gives the found image new life.
