Photography  
17 x 22 in
archival pigment prints on Museo Silver Rag paper

SUSANNAH HAYS approaches her photographic practice as a philosopher experiences phenomena and poetic renderings of the world around us. Working with tangible objects, each of her camera and cameraless images reveal a hidden beauty that asks us to remember where things come from —how they arrive and why they endure. Her series of Medieval hand-written books, from the Tuscan region of Castiglion Fiorentino, sit on their shelves undisturbed. While DNA research of our day empirically reveals where and how they were made, visible traces of who touched, held and kissed them leave a lasting imprint on the viewer. Enlarged larger than life, we physically experience how time has worn and preserved their spines. Thread-bare, made of plant and animal flesh, they are in some sort of enigmatic way like us. Standing in silent dignity, having survived century after century, they remain as they always were—vessels of embodied knowledge.
