Handpainted Accordion Book

2017

Objective: Add Light to Dark

Deliverables: Painting on photography, handbound book

Every few days I would visit this cemetery in Utica, NY during the course of three months. It was a peaceful experience to take my camera on a walk in complete solitude. Deer would leap over gravestones and the sun would beam through the trees. The landscape was so dense I could happily get lost. I was not alone, I was surrounded. Imagining leaving flowers for everyone - I would read some names to ponder their story. This is a place for the living, for the ones who remain to remember, to see the future.
