Lost Things Found Space by Cara Harman

Issue 68

When I was growing up in Los Angeles I always gravitated toward things that weren’t so obvious to look at: the spaces in-between, the cracks in things, shadows playing on the ground and climbing up the walls. I’d see the windows on houses, but then be pulled in by the fingerprints left on those windows. It was only a matter of time before I started shooting imagery in the same way that I recognized what was around me, and eventually weaving together those images to create my body of work Lost Things/Found Space. I wanted to capture places, moments, and objects in the way that they haunted me, like vestiges of their former selves. I wanted to tell a simple, almost-ghostly story about something as minuscule as a leaf or a  single cloud. This body of my work is what propelled me into my love of photography, and something that I still am constantly shooting for today. The project never ends because I will always recognize and see the things the same way for as long as I have my camera and the will to use it.
