Memories of the Everyday Photography Project by Lauren Marek

Pin It

We’ve featured a Lauren Marek series before, and she continues to put together creative projects that are worth sharing. Her latest is called Memories of the Everyday, a personal photography and video project documenting simple moments in her life. You can follow Lauren on Flickr, Facebook, and her website.

“I document the everyday through photographs and video, focusing on my emotional and personal relationships with friends and family. These unguarded and meditative moments trigger a sense of universality of the bonds of friendship and family and simple moments in life. I rely on image sequence to create elusive narratives that reference the passage of time. Through the documentation of unfolding moments with those I am close to, I blur the line between staged and real experience – echoing the uncertainty and elusiveness of memories themselves.”

“The in-between moments that my photographs suggest are more exposed in the video presentation. The short film fills in the gaps that the photographs have created. Like the series of images, these video clips are unplanned snapshots of daily life. Placed together, these clips create a narrative that encourages the viewer to create connections for themselves. The film reveals insight into my life, documenting the fragile connections I have to the world around me, resulting in a visual diary.”
