Shane Prine “The Presence of Absence,” Photography
Shane Prine’s goal is to capture an elegiac quality in subjects both animate and inanimate. A phrase that, he believes, encapsulates his most recent work is “the presence of absence.” A central theme of Shane’s work is memory-what informs memory, how does it change over time, why is that memories are often romanticized…or how is it that nostalgia or trauma often color memory accordingly. Other related ideas contained here involve questions of identity and belief.
