The consequences of image making

More than just saying “I was here”, photographs can preserve the memory of those lost, keep close those far away, document a collective, initiate improbably relationships, or simply allow a traveler to remember and share their experiences with others. This small selection of images (some of which I  featured on my instagram and facebook feeds this past week), explores the consequences of image making.

This coming week, I will feature some images of summer.
