Keeping Up With The Joneses

Keeping Up With The Joneses is an exploration of the intrinsic act of repetition that occurs within the familial archive, and the ways in which we document and catalogue these family histories.

The work examines the photograph as an object and the role it plays in both aiding and subverting unreliable recollection, through the act of imprinting afterthoughts on these objects years after they have been printed.

It makes explicit the methodology behind the universal act of taking identical snapshots in order to capture and solidify everyday life, and the way we imbue a sense of memory and nostalgia onto otherwise unremarkable vernacular photographs.
