One summer in the early 1930’s, my father shot a few rolls of film near his father’s drugstore in Center City Philadelphia. Nearly 90 years later I was given the negatives by a relative. Working from the original negatives, I’ve combined the people from my father’s neighborhood with my own images.
In NOW IS ALWAYS, I want to create a sense of collapsed-yet-expanded time. I want to look at the past, and I want the past to look right back. And by combining images taken almost a century apart, I also want to explore technology, memory, and image-making history.
