Digital print on handmade paper
Jacqueline Bon is in search of rugged romance — the true feeling of a subject, a fleeting moment, and all the texture around it. Her photographs are a combination of reality, open-ended narratives, and subtle metaphors. By utilizing medium format photography and the inimitable way it captures light, Bon's images depict the way time erodes our memories and influences the present.
As a graduate of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, she approaches the subjects of her work from both a documentarian and highly personal perspective. The result is a body of work that is meant to linger in the mind of viewer like a strange dream.
