Mary Curtis Ratcliff’s “Eye to Eye”
Mary Curtis Ratcliff’s “Eye to Eye” represents a collaboration of sorts between Ratcliff and her father, a world traveller who documented his journeys across the globe, printing and mounting the resulting photographs into 42 albums.
Ratcliff rediscovered her father’s work many years after his death and working with a selection of his photographs using projection, montage, image transfer, drawing, and painting she has both engaged in a “conversation” with her father, gaining insight into his world view, and also made the works her own. http://www.marycurtisratcliff.com/index.php
