About ‘Lost and Found‘ – words by Marijane Ceruti
Lost and Found is an ongoing project that began in 2014. It is a document of my journey of self-discovery and enlightenment through loss and explores my evolving relationship with it. I photograph in challenging times to provide perspective into those moments. I explore the relationship between photography, time as an erosive process, and death. I photograph loved ones and reflect on the relationship between myself, the subject, and the photograph particularly as the photograph comes to full maturity after the death or loss of the subject. I am inspired by the landscape and culture of New England, transitional periods, and my own emotions in response to an experience.
