Flower Mound by Kristen Bartley
Flower Mound borrows its title from the suburban Texas town where I grew up and frequently returned to as an adult while both of my parents were succumbing to separate battles with cancer. Throughout these years I was enveloped in a thick cloud of nostalgia. The light was swiftly fading from the people and the place I considered my first home. I photographed heavily during this time as an attempt to save everything I would soon lose forever. The resulting images capture those fleeting moments of intimacy, joy and grief. Woven together they serve as a lyrical reflection on love, loss and the ephemeral nature of life.
