Student Narrative

"Does a thorn mean it?" attempts to locate the familiar in the unfamiliar. For the project, photographs taken in rural New England are paired with short poems and prose that explore memory of home. They are collected in a photo-album format, as the photographs become elegiac. Place, mythology, pastness, and memory are explored in this photo text.
