* The Past is Always Present *
Shane Majors Artist
The Past is Always Present is a photographic documentation and exploration of the history of an American family. The idea is to take the viewer on a pictorial diary of the discovery of the sites, remnants and people that make up my family and its history. For me, the idea of surmising one's life with a dash mark is very cold. I see genealogy as more than that; it's about the life that existed within that dash, the experiences and events that helped shape who we've become. It's from this ever present drive of wanting to know and preserve my history that this project was born.
