"The Distances Between Us is a visual investigation of cemetery markers used to describe the anonymous deceased. The book contains photographs of elaborately carved stones labeled father and mother and numbered markers from cemeteries that formerly served state-run hospitals, jails and schools. Collectively, the images explore photography’s inherent relationship to memory and loss, recalling nineteenth century post-mortem photographs, eulogic portraits of loved ones displayed on mantels, and the desperation we feel to immortalize the lost."
