Heredity and preservation through successive generations are the concepts that inhabit Jessica Trafford’s Circles. This twelve-set of spheres was created from crops of photographs taken by the artist’s blood relatives. Preserved as daguerreotypes, the circles capture a questionable sentimentality - highlighting the similarities of familial vision while acknowledging an ultimate ambiguity. Like looking at a family photo album through binoculars.
There’s a certain moody nostalgia brooding through this and most of her other work, and I like it.
