Carrie Hall Tomberlin will be displaying her photography at the Highline Community College Art Gallery, October 31 – November 30, 2008.
Photography allows one to still a moment on paper and make that memory tangible. These images allude to visual memory and how it permeates daily life. In these images I show how that memory is vivid, yet at the same time, often confused and non-linear. This body of work builds narratives through the association of people and places, addressing mortality and the transient nature of our culture.
The images were created by on film through the use of a Holga camera. The film was scanned and is printed digitally 5 feet long by 2 feet tall on Tyvek. No digital manipulation has taken place aside from basic color correction and appear as they did on film.
