REBUILDING / 2004-2005
Hedison’s earlier work, “Rebuilding,” implies a history with the exploration of shifting narratives. These images focus on specific architectural structures as they transform over time. Hedison photographed these sites as if they were stories in and of themselves.
Rebar and everyday building materials litter the frame as themes of loss, transition and recovery come into play on a modernist grid. Horizontal and vertical lines divide the focal plane while creating still lives of an almost romantic sensibility. The photographs offer passage through a landscape of broken interiors, discarded furnishings, and scaffolding erected to support the construction of these rebuilt homes. Like our own narratives, their shape and form continue to be written and rewritten.
