Ellen Cantor

FAMILY (& other works)

Ellen Cantor upholds that images sustain memory.  Though she admits that photographs are but an abstraction of the real experience, we can only imagine what life was like for our parents and their contemporaries, snapshots still cause us to react emotionally to our past.  The artist juxtaposes the images of different generations of family snapshots to compress time and allow viewers to see past and not so past simultaneously, for she finds that time is not necessarily linear; it blends together into a collective memory.
