Days after her 100th
DAYS AFTER HER 100.
In this project, I challenge myself to create a photographic work that portrays my Grandmother through representations of her body and the objects associated with it in daily routines.
Human body ages with time, it is a nature we cannot resist. Objects, on the other spectrum, just like souvenirs, witness time and save memories. I play around with this opposition by making a series of diptychs, pairing a portrait of Grandmother's body part with that of an object significant or intimately belonging to it.
My work is comparatively instinctive. I hold little concern of what it eventually looks like, what matters is how it feels like. This is as much a personal experience, like a memoir to remember about my Grandma. At her age of 100, we all know that someday, she will be gone. If there is anything I can do to keep her memorized against the flow of time, this is it, right now.
