—One secret, one photograph, three sides of the story.
"I kept every letter she sent me and every photo. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him."
UNRAVELING TAYLOR'S STORY
At the time of Taylor's birth, my parents were young in their relationship and could not give him the life he deserved. Refusing abortion, they went through an intense adoption process and found Taylor an incredibly loving family, who sent letters and pictures throughout his childhood.
To represent the process of reliving memory and seeking understanding, I created three sculptural posters. Each one utilizes three visual elements to represent my family's varying and complex emotional experiences: dynamic type treatment, negative space, and one photograph.
These compositions invite the reader to interact with my family's intimate and painful experience, prompting them to unfold Taylor’s story and interpret it from various angles. By allowing them into the process of piecing his life togther, their experience becomes just as intimate and unique.
