Molly Lamb – ‘Ghost Stepping’

Molly Lamb’s series ‘Ghost Stepping’- how much of our memories and histories are inaccessible and untrustworthy?

This is a poetic visual conversation with photographer’s family where fragments and layers overlap and blur, in exploring the transitory nature of existence and how they bridge together past and present, and shape her own mental landscape.

“It probably began with the crepe myrtle tree outside my window. The tangle of branches made sense to me, and this became the way I made sense of everything that didn’t.

Over the years, I have inherited the belongings of most of my family. Packing and unpacking them has become an internal conversation about the reach of the past into the present. The belongings they left behind, elusive memories, and contradictory family stories form the precarious bedrock upon which my present reality rests.”
