This memory is redacted but not gone, photography, art photography




I would like to thank the Film and Media Arts Department at Syracuse University for giving me the opportunity to study in the Art Photography program. In addition, I would like to express my appreciation to my professors; Yasser Aggour, Doug DuBois, Laura Heyman, and Susannah Sayler, and my fellow classmates from the past three years in helping me become the best artist I can be. I am not sure I was ready when I started grad school, but now I am not ready to leave. And last, but certainly not least, thank you to my mater, Linda, for all her love and continued support in my pursuit of this degree. I love you so much and cannot tell you how grateful I am for everything you have done for me.


Interdisciplinary Arts and Media


In this paper, This memory is redacted but not gone, I discuss how my artistic practice, my time in graduate school, and my own life experiences have led me to create my thesis project. The paper is split up into chapters describing the work I made while in graduate school along with my themes; memory, family, home, and identity, and methods; archive, collage, and investigation, of working. I then dedicate a chapter specifically to my thesis work before concluding the paper with my plans to continue my practice after graduate school.
