Negative | Shir Newman

Post-traumatic memory is characterized by a non-linear narrative. In an attempt to restore moments in her personal narrative, Newman holds on to these analog photographs as anchors in a family history of an intergenerational line of photographers. The absence of a familiar space is tied to that hereditary post-traumatic memory, passed down as the very art of photography, handed over from one generation to the next.
