“Lasting Light”

Eamon Brokenbrough, artist

I grew up in the rural South. When I was younger and I would be stuck to my dad’s hip for an errand run, it would be rare when he would not encounter someone to talk to. It seemed to me that all people ever wanted to talk about was the past and I could never understand why. Looking back on the past to me has always been a way of holding onto home. But time goes on and home shifts. In this project I wanted to document the shifting of my home, the South. Where many things hold traces of older times and more detail a changing. My work isn’t about what the South will become, it’s about what it was and observing what it may be. Like a conversation with a friend from the past; all I have to share is history with reflections of the future.
