Jackie Munro: I can see the echoes of great spaces traversed

It was again a great pleasure to teach at the Santa Fe Workshops recently, and one of the wonderful rewards was meeting Jackie Munro, who assisted me throughout the week.  Jackie is also a photographer, filmmaker, and an educator and her work documents the relationships people have to their histories and the natural environment.  She is currently working on a feature documentary film set in New Mexico.  I am featuring work from, I can see the echoes of great spaces traversed, a series about travel, shelter, and what we leave behind.
After graduation from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Photography and Imaging, she worked as an instructor at the International Center of Photography in NYC amongst other venues, and has exhibited her work nationally.
I can see the echoes of great spaces traversed

These photographs are the record of what I saw when I visited hotel rooms after people checked out and before they were cleaned. Journeying through the traces of othersʼ journeys, I used my camera to punctuate the sameness that is moving from one place to another. I never got tired of simply being in each room, seeing the echoes of great spaces traversed.
