A Life Backwards is a set of my father's photographs. I began to wonder how many times we had looked at them over the years; for reassurance and comfort, or to be transported there. I dusted them with fingerprint powder to reveal some visual proof of those moments.
The fingerprints draw our eye from within the image, to the surface; from the past to the present; from subject to object.
