In the artist’s own words: “We all experience Deja Vu at times. When I have this fleeting feeling I wonder where it occurred. Was it in a dream, from a past experience or perhaps another time? That’s what interests me: often we cannot pinpoint an exact moment that is triggered by an image, but we know a prior experience must be there. This landscape series discovers these pasts by photographing in film with my plastic camera. I use a specific setting on my Holga which melds the images together in camera. The images can repeat or merge together creating a dreamscape. These images express a fleeting impression of a place as a memory. I invite the viewer to stay a bit looking as it may conjure a prior experience.”
