I finally visited the Griffin Museum of Photography on Friday and visited Frances. It was really awesome to take my time and look at all of the work they had up. In particular, the series by Diane Meyer really peeked my interest. The body of work is titled Time Spent that Might Otherwise Be Forgotten. Here’s a little of what she has to say about it, “This series is based on photographs taken at various points in my life and arranged by location. Sections of the images have been obscured through a layer of embroidered pixels sewn directly into the photograph. The embroidery deteriorates sections of the original photograph forming a new pixelated layer of the original scene. The project refers to the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history as well as the means by which photographs become nostalgic objects that obscure objective understandings of the past.” Please take a second to check out her work! I was also able to stop by the Griffin’s Stoneham gallery space and see the work by Frank Yamrus titled “I Feel Lucky”. While the gallery was only able to display a small amount of them, the series as a whole is really striking. If you can make it out to either gallery space, I highly recommend it! Plus, say Hi to Frances and Paula for me!
