Her Disappearance

In this work, I mourn Hazel’s death. The observation of disappearance, can not be shown itself by photographic means. Photography conjures up the existence of something or somebody through the power of indexicality and iconography. It embodies the desire to capture something transitory at a time when it still exists, for a time when it won’t exist any longer. In this case absence manifests itself through traces of Hazel in the depicted object and through the speculative moment of photographic memory, which produces illusion and testimony at the same time.
