European Tour

EUROPEAN TOUR (in progress) examines the shifting value of photography as archive. Through an exploration of an anonymous slide collection containing over seven hundred images depicting a group of women and their travels through Europe via a tour bus, I seek to unearth their valued moments. By highlighting and manipulating certain aspects of the archive, I hope to make a comparison to the way we share images today versus the family slide show of the past for which these images were intended.

I am not creating a historical record with the images used as documentation but rather a narrative of a perceived experience that questions the veracity of photography, the role of the image as it serves memory and nostalgia, and the collection as archive which is both cherished and abandoned.
