St. Mary's Projects in Studio Art:

Elise Kielek / 2012


 Traditionally, photography is a form of representation and documentation.  It has been understood as a means through which we represent truth.  But in reality, it is a replacement, or a stand in, for the actual space that has been photographed.  It is a representation of reality—a kind of truth.  Through my photographs, I am representing a possible reality, but one that is skewed by impossibilities.
