Works in Progress > Passports

"Passports" is an ongoing project where I repeatedly reinterpret my father's earliest passport photo. I am intrigued by what the image represents as an identifier and how I could develop a conversation with the image through the use of collage and other materials. This project is partly inspired by Romare Bearden in that I reflected on his ability to build, re-inscribe and transform our relationship to the past by visually dislodging and bringing back together that which is universal.
