Persons in Location

2015

‘Persons in Location’ revisits land close to Yosemite, in the American West, as a means to contrast expectation and reality. In particular, the anonymity and fiction from the Walker Evans and James Agee book, 'Let Us Now Praise Famous Men' is used as a reference to invoke the space between preconceptions and tangible information. In particular, the emphasis resides in how information and biases can lead to dehumanizing treatment towards mental illness.
