rachelrardin@free range

a favourite for its contrast between strong focus and blur, and those dreamy colours you associate with 70s photography. you know the kind, with the hippies dancing around in the fields (referring to a recent editorial that was done similar in i.D)
this series, 'Illusions of a Remembered Past' is the outcome of her research into the relationship between the photographic image, the imagined image, and the act of recollection. Rardin has explored the imagined spaces of our remembered past, using landscape imagery, portraying fragments of forgotten moments. examining photography's ability both to recall the actual past but also to create an illusion of a past that never was.
