It Is Never Tomorrow
It Is Never Tomorrow, archival C-prints heat mounted on acrylic, 20" x 30", 2008, edition of 5
This work stems from great loss, being lost and losing, striving to find an aesthetic to disappearance, followed by a vast search, with the arctic as the backdrop. The starting point is the famed Sir John Franklin Expedition of 1845, which meant to finalize a route through the Northwest Passage. The expedition ended in the disappearance (and subsequent death) of all 133 crewmembers and captain.
The photographic narrative enters in during the search for the disappeared, the search for frontier, and the act of claiming. Humans and phantasms wander together. The photographs are memories, distant -scapes that do not hinge upon pure recollection.
