‘Recollected Memories’ is Jackson Patterson’s latest project. His work reflects various photographs that he has merged with others from his family’s albums.
Patterson find himself inspired by the stories that come into focus when we collocate the medium of photography with 21st century technological practices, the cultural influence of our country’s migration west, and the personal history of family. Every piece, blended with others, processes its very own original story as well as insights about representation, fabrication and visual language. The photographer who is originally from Arizona, found during the project that the stories he discovered are not only his family’s stories but are stories that exist throughout the west and beyond. ‘They are stories of perseverance, pride, struggle, life and death. They are human stories intertwined in a majestic landscape.’
