My first image of my Cheesman Park District series. I am attempting to investigate a region of historic Denver as to how those who live here preserve memories through the built structures, thus indirectly preserving the past memories, while layering on new memories.

Always a question as to how to move a project forward, how to visually interpret what is there and what narrative to create. In most of my recent projects, there is a personal subtext; that I have a personal connection to the photographs and the stories that ensue. This series is similar to my Ciociaria project, that of dropping into a little known place, wondering around to go deep, observing and attempting to be open to how memory and its preservation are intertwined.

So while waiting for the voice of my muse to become clearer, I will work on some creative options. In this case, I seem to be opting for a pictorial & stylized narrative that has some lyrical qualities.

Cheers!
