Off With Her Head


Off With Her Head is a series of unfixed salt prints. Over time they will darken and eventually lose any trace of the information that was once there. Although I do have digital copies of these images, there is no preserving these photographs as they are, and no ink jet print can reproduce them. These photographs are living and aging. As I show them and talk about them, there becomes less and less to talk about.

Once our head, the vessel where memory is stored, is gone, does one choose whether to search for what is missing or accept their fate and move on? This series is an interpretation of the physical struggle of holding on to something that is already gone and the eventual decision to let go. I am figure pictured in all of these portraits. By allowing these images to dissappear, I am also accepting the fact that my memories will continue to disolve.
