Jose Luis Garcia’s Artist Statement:
“Every time I go through something scary, traumatic, I survive by taking pictures.” – Nan Goldin
This statement from Nan Goldin about the cathartic aspect of making photographs has influenced my artistic practice. I, too, create photographs that reflect on the passage of time. My work also deals with my identity and personal narratives; however, I have re-contextualized images as poetic investigations of memory and loss.
