My work teeters at the intersection of heavy research on the social practice of family photography in order to reveal the pictorial family as a set of coded rituals. I use this understanding as a way of exploring myself as both a figure who appears within this narrative, and as someone who was both removed from the custody of her mother at a young age, and raised without knowledge of her father. I work through the idea of chronological narrative, post-memory, and performance alike to construct a better understanding of my familial narrative. That is, the narrative that evolved from physical photographs housed in shoe boxes and frames, to pixels, posts, and clouds.
