The Blue Bed Spread
Fine Art Photography
The series Absentia explores spaces in a state of abandonment and unexpected departure, creating a feeling of being animated and inhabited but absent at the same time. I am interested in the in between period in the life of the house, the transition from one era to another in the lifetime of the place.
The series Absentia started in this house in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, and The Blue Bed Spread represents the beginning of my exploration. I was visiting friends there and was wrapping a five-year photo project that demanded a lot of social energy and interaction with people.
I longed for something that was more solitary and contemplative and I stumbled upon this house ravaged by hurricane Odile in 2014. I was shocked by how animated the home was, it looked like people had just left to run errands, and then vaporized never returning. The strong feeling of their lives and the mystery of their disappearance fascinated me.
