The series Keyframes came when I inherited a couple boxes full of family photos and began the long process of scanning them all to fit them into a digital catalog. The patch like grids of photos are constructed from an archive of images taken by my mother, who recently passed away after a long bought with brain damage due to injuries sustained from a fall while vacationing. Since this incident, I had scanned over 4000 photos as a way to process my grief. When I would scan the library of photos I amassed, I noticed I had only about 100 pictures of mom. One of the keywords I used in archiving the photos was “mom’s camera flash”. I had more pictures where you couldn’t see mom unless you looked in a window in the back of the image for a reflection of her and/or her camera flash. As a continued to sort and apply keywords to these photos, I also made inventories of other visual cues, such as pictures of my dad standing in the frame by himself, pictures of 1970/80’s motel rooms and rest stops on vacation, and other common occurrences.
