"Gretka, Child of Lauban, 1898" by Sierra Lowe

From the artist: From a stack of gray and abandoned, antiques photographs, I choose a handful to bring into the contemporary conversation. In researching dozens of Victorian lives, I am inspired by the unchanging human dynamics and a desire to preserve the forgotten. As an artist, I feel my role is not to be the storyteller of these distant lives, but the facilitator of a connection between the viewer and the past.  In ruminating about the daily lives of these subjects, we can explore our own assumptions or desires.  A two-way mirror is created of us watching them and them watching us, and a dissection of those thoughts often offers some surprises."
