These 35mm film photographs are rooted in the idea of feeling an emptiness when revisiting our memories, such that makes them feel distant and unfamiliar, almost as if they were lived by someone else. Walking through my past like a stranger, having to remind myself this space was once mine. The room pictured in these photographs at one point belonged to me. Being faced with the physical evidence of it, I continually feel a strong detachment from its cold memories.
The use of film for these photographs adds a quality that reinforces the concept of hazy memory. The texture and grain of the photo alongside the chipping walls help to provide a narrative of a worn place. The figure in the photo looks to be waiting for something, waiting for it all to feel real. Both photos show the figures shadow, amplifying the emptiness of the space.
