My grandmother, Adele, stops scrubbing to pose for my grandfather's photo - I wonder if he helped her clean?

My mother’s photo book also speaks to a specific relationship to the image. These images, taken by my grandfather sixty some odd years ago are not unlike images I consume,create, and share today. However, while my grandfather had these images printed and bound, so that I can hold them today I share the equivalent image on Instagram. In my work I am interested in exploring how the images you consume and the way you consume them shape your consciousness particularly in terms of a rapidly changing culture of images.
For these collages I pulled images from the 1966 book to be alive! based on a film of the same name . Using digital manipulation I hoped to distance the found images from their visual and narrative contexts.
