ERODED BEAUTY: A RETROPECTIVE
As an individual living with FTD, a form of early onset dementia, I’ve been experiencing the crisis of COVID-19 and the civil unrest of 2020 through the eroding frontal and temporal lobes of my brain. In short, I have been thinking about the pandemic and global events through the lens of erosion . . . the destruction of the familiar and the secure, and the birthing and creation of things yet unknown.
As I reviewed hundreds of digital photographs during quarantine, I was particularly intrigued by the beauty of eroding rust, concrete, fabric and wood. Then came COVID-19. Hence, I have titled the images as they spoke to me in the early spring of 2020. Perhaps, you will see something very different in my pictures. I look forward to hearing your perspective.
