KAITLYN DANIELSON | Of Breath and Dust

Jun 26, 2021 - Aug 01, 2021

Narrowsburg resident Kaitlyn Danielson views photography as a lasting portrait of the ephemeral.

“In ‘Of Breath and Dust,’ I seize the moment of my fading breath and directly address the legacy of the photograph as memento mori,” she explains. “Multiple breaths balance precariously on each other in sculptural forms; the notion of the photograph as a permanent object, balanced precariously on the temporal nature of the body.”

 

“The images of this series are printed as ambrotypes, a 19th century photographic process named from the Greek ambrotos, meaning ‘immortal.’ Clung to glass through light and silver of the colloidal process, the breath becomes a nebulous glow, an organism, a cosmic landscape.”
