Left Behind.

Monday, July 14, 2014

In a series she calls Left Behind, photographer Jennifer Loeber pays tribute to a lost parent by pairing portraits of her late mother with images of her everyday belongings: a spray bottle, a Brownie camera, a hairbrush with purple-tipped teeth. Following her mother's death, Loeber found that it was the most ordinary objects that were especially difficult to hold on to; cataloguing them as part of a series helped process the pain. Says the artist, "It makes me happy because I now think of happy memories."

ahh this is sad - maybe that shouldn't be my first reaction but I do think possessions get imprinted by people or at least our memories stored in them so when people pass away it's hard not to find an attachment to things! Lovely idea though and I'm a big fan of doing anything that helps in sad times :)

This is beautiful and heartbreaking. :( Those simple everyday objects would be the hardest for me to deal with too.
