Adrienne Defendi: Relinquish | LENSCRATCH

I have admired Adrienne Defendi’s work for a number of years and was very happy to meet her and see her work in person at Photolucida. Having a background in the toy camera world, I know the artistry it takes to transcend a plastic lens and limited range of options.  But Adrienne’s work follows in the footsteps of the ground breaking work by Nancy Rexroth, where the tool to create the work is secondary to the imagery. These beautifully seen and captured photographs, rich in metaphor and story telling, take us through the final chapter of her parent’s lives. Her project, Relinquish, is a quiet and poetic documentation of love, loss, memory, and last days.
