Autobiographical Mythologies, 2015 - 2018

Autobiographical Mythologies are a component of the forthcoming exhibition, Persuasive Devices, at Cedar Crest College's Center for Visual Research, September 4th through October 22nd, 2018
All images are a kind of lie, and even our own photographs tell only a version of the truth.
Through the images we author and share, we attend to the fictions of our lives.
I use found photography as a point of departure to explore our curated autobiographical mythologies.
