Women and Roses

Accordion book with slipcase

DESCRIPTION

When I was eleven I came across one of my grandmother's family photo albums. The kind that had a worn leather cover embossed diagonally across the front with the word "photographs," made up of sheets and sheets of black paper, each page containing our family's personal history. As I flipped through, I recognized the early images of stoic family members, photos of military men, children, and family picnics. But mid-way through, the album took a strange turn. Among the photos of family reunions were photographs of a woman missing her head. Not on just one photo, but many, she had been strategically cut from the family.
