Sheron Rupp : Taken From Memory


Taken From Memory is the result of a 25-year long-time project by American photographer Sheron Rupp (b. 1943 in Mansfield, Ohio). Searching for connections to her own biographical past, Rupp took these photographs in rural America looking to find a piece of someone else’s life to give her a sense of »belonging.« Personal in nature, these photographs offer a stirring glimpse into the life in the commonly disregarded rural areas and small towns between the bustling metropolises of the East and West Coast. Without pretense or irony, without assertion or judgment, Rupp’s impressions from the past also work as a commentary on the current social reality.

To the imagination, to memory, nothing is really lost if it is experienced with affirmation…In my photographs…, I attempt to arrive at something poetic, something I can hold on to both as an image and as emotional sustenance…Sheron Rupp
