Stephanie O’Connor – All Stars Stand Close In Summer Air (signed)
Signed and numbered edition of 80
‘All Stars Stand Close in Summer Air’ explores a return home after a 5 year absence.
The images blur a mélange of family, nature, and old haunts where things no longer look or feel the same. There is an uncanny newness to the familiar, memories haloed and awash with ochres and greens.
The poems inside are penned by Frances Libeau, based in Aotearoa, creating a vital tether to the birthplace of the images. Fragmented and visceral, Frances’ response to the photographs echo the slippery mutability of the image, seeing, and remembrance.
