Keeping

Dianne Carroll Burdick's avatar Dianne Carroll Burdick

Keeping is a collection of black and white images that tell the story of a value system. What do you keep? What do you throw away? What do you want to keep? What is precious to you? Time, Water resources, peace, equality, justice, honesty, freedom, connections, creativity, humanity. All images were taken in Maine during my Golden Apple Artist-in-Residency. I mostly photographed hundreds of scenes and things using my macro lens, photographing tiny little worlds. I am using the platform of nature and the environment to describe the concepts. That is what loss in the pandemic is really about: going after the thing you didn't value until you were in the position to lose it. The final images will be installed in the rectangular space as a miniature Art Gallery.
