Molly Lamb says that over the years she has inherited most of her family’s belongings and that packing and unpacking them has become an internal dialogue.
“The belongings [my family] left behind, elusive memories, and contradictory family stories form the precarious bedrock upon which my present reality rests,” states Lamb. “The photographs [of Ghost Stepping] are a meditation on the fragments and layers that shape my personal landscape, its erosion, and its transformation. “
