Allison Calteux (MFA 2023, Art) has been receiving attention for her recent photography project Remnants // relics // remembrance. The impressive body of work examines her family archives through self-portraits and still-life interactions with books, jewelry, and images, creating representations of her ancestors. Calteux is now a lecturer in photography and imaging lecturer at PSOA.
She sat down with associate-lecturer-turned-colleague Alayna Pernell to discuss the project on the popular fine arts site Lenscratch. They dove into the project, noting how discussing archival photography in Pernell’s class helped inspire Calteux to explore her family’s history. What resulted has been described as “a commemoration of familial lineage towards the future through the traces of the past.”
