Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison
In his new monograph, The Art of Ruin, Robert Stivers explores the distances that keep memory strange and uninhabitable. The objects presented in this series are, to some extent, recognizable. But the psychic experience the artist infuses seamlessly into these photographs, transforms them—evoking both a sense of loss and recovery. The result is a richly textured and nuanced body of photographs examining the nature of ruin.
