Photo-Eye's Photographer's Showcase Presents New Work by Adam Holtzman

© Adam Holtzman
"After the unexpected death of my grandfather, I gathered with my family to grieve and to try and put things in order. We began to sort his belongings, going through each room cleaning and packing. After several trips the house became empty of these things that were his. As this process became complete I was struck by the differing voids left as a result. Here was a place, now absent of its occupant, the belongings and life. I traveled back to the house several times to try and express visually this absence I felt, haunted by the transformation that took so little time to complete. " --Adam Holtzman.
