About (Re)calling & (Re)telling:

For several years Kesha Bruce’s work has used photography as a means to explore new ways of conceptualizing cultural and ethnic identities and histories. Inspired by a collection of old and damaged negatives given to her by her grandfather, (Re)calling and (Re)telling is essentially the next step in the progression of those ideas.

Each photograph in (Re)calling and (Re)telling begins with a single large-format negative. Once a print has been made from the negative, fragments of maps, drawings, or other found imagery are
manually manipulated directly in front of the camera lens, on a delicately lit three-dimensional set, in order to arrive at a final image.

Each image in the series is composed and created “in camera”
without the aid of photo-editing software. (Re)calling and (Re)telling is part history, part personal mythology, and part homage. Each image contains narratives and histories, both real and invented, that give voice to individuals who remain marginalized by the commonly accepted meta-narratives within Western culture.
