December 2, 2005

On December 6 of 2005, my parents were involved in a car crash at a local restaurant. Because I was not there during the crash, the story has been retold to me by my parents - who often left out parts of the story too graphic or uncomfortable to discuss. As a way of coming to terms with this, I analyzed the original crime scene photographs and various news stories about the event. Using these photographs, I was able to create lithonegatives. These negatives were then used to create the cyanotypes featured in the book, which are accompanied by text taken from news articles and my own memories.
