My photographs examine the life of Sylvia DeWolf Ostrander (1841-1925). Our story begins with a small trunk abandoned on a New York City street. I utilize the primary materials which remain from her life to subjectively re-tell her story.  I haunt the places she has been, read her journals, wear her clothing, and contemplate her once lived life.  I imagine backwards, an apparition in her bygone era.  She visits me in the present in my dreams.  These photographs are born in a space I think of as "no-when."  No-when takes place in both the 19th century and the present.  It is a fictional place where Sylvia and I exist together. The photographs on the site represent a small sample from a much larger body of work.
