Rachel Cox: Shiny Ghost
I have always taken pictures of her. When my Grandmother was diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease that would soon take her life, I took even more. The photographs were initially taken as attempts to frantically feel close to my grandmother as her own consciousness faded. I began to photograph what I thought I knew about her, the attributes that ostensibly defined her, but would often end up, instead, with pictures that represented my own fears and doubts about our relationship.
This visual confrontation has helped to move beyond these obstacles; I accept them. The pictures were taken amidst conversations and gestures, instances of light and the subconscious passing of valuable time—experiences too fleeting to know of their significance.
