PHOTO NOLA: Cathy Cone: Rewinding Forward - LENSCRATCH

This week we are sharing some of our discoveries from the PHOTO NOLA Reviews, an annual celebration of photography in New Orleans.  “I make photographs as a way to listen to my heart’s song, and then I practice like hell to sing it.” Cathy Cone Cathy Cone

Cathy Cone is a photographer and painter based in East Topsham, Vermont. Her series Rewinding Forward is an ongoing life project, representing events and personal experiences in a continuum. There’s a whimsical quality to this work, reminiscent to the photographs in her former series Hand Painted Photographs. Yet Rewinding Forward infuses a sense of foreboding, creating visual poems that contemplate the mystery and intrigue of simply being alive. An interview with the artist follows.
