“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Elisabeth Munro uses photography to re-evaluate her past through studies of light and space. This work, The Blind Love of a Place Called Home, is a reflection of the dissociative relationship the artist has with the area she grew up in. The images underscore a sense of unease in the silent and empty towns and villages in which she was raised.
