Gabriella Giselle Camejo
My good friend Gaby was killed our senior year at MICA when she crossed the street with my other good friend Kent Miller who was injured, but survived. For whatever reason, ever since then I periodically write my thoughts about the experience, or create visual works expressing my concern about the situation. I never truly was able to recover from the experience as I am sure many of my friends who were close to her also cannot. Emotions that could never truly be expressed through a blog. I created this work for Suzanne Camejo, Gaby's mother.
The print is a pictogram of a tracing of an image of Gabriella, with the following flowers overlaid on the print. A negative was created with Ilford paper in the dakroom, and a positive was printed from the paper negative.
