How does memory define a place? Gallery owner and artist, Dan Shepherd, has many memories of places he has traveled and hiked. In his mediation practice, he often “travels” to imaginary places that really are just combinations of reconstructed memories from real locations. Similar to the fleeting nature of memories, blue print (diazotype) paper is non-archival and fades over time. The ephemeral nature of this medium and its alternative photographic process piqued Dan’s interest and led to his Terra Nova series of slowly disappearing diazotype prints that are themselves a contemplative meditation on memory and place.
