SARA ANGELUCCI Angelucci’s work has developed from an examination of the family archive to a broader interpretation of anonymous/found photographs. The photographs in Aviary are made by combining photographs of endangered or extinct North American birds with anonymous nineteenth century ‘cartes-de-visite’ portraits-they portray creatures about to become ghosts. Angelucci’s work foregrounds the cultural role vernacular images play in framing particular stories, creating histories, and memorialization.
