"A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light." To me, photograms make contact and remember my direct past.
Traces is an ongoing project begun in the summer of 2008 after my mom's passing away. It all began by placing family relics onto photographic papers and exposing to the dimmest light set in a photographic darkroom. Later on, it included found objects from nature near and far.
