Past SPE Annual Conferences

Melissa Borman

SPE Member since 2012
Member Chapter: Midwest


Depicting ceramic birds collected from friends, family members, and thrift stores, Melissa's ongoing photography project, Birds, is about the fragile things we love and treasure. We make space for them, we care for them, and yet more often than not someone will find them neglected or damaged despite our good intentions. The work asserts that they, like so many imperfect and once abandoned things, are worthy of care and attention.
