People from the past slowly settle into my memory, each forming a permeable layer over the other. With time, these strata dissolve and only fragments remain. Jessica’s eagerness, Michael’s honesty, Amber’s bad decisions all soften into a moment, a remembered image of someone who once meant something to me. Over time, these fragile memories slip into the collective marrow of a life.

Trying to gather our shared thoughts, words, and secrets is like sifting through fog. Sometimes memories of people appear unexpectedly; a face illuminated through a cloudy landscape takes me back. Gradually, however, people slip into a gray stippling of hair and eyes.

This series explores the loss of relationships and time’s role in eroding memories of those bonds.
