REMNANTS & REMAINS

photography & photograms by

ANN BURRELL

ANN BURRELL is a photography instructor with the community education department at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. She shoots with black and white film that she processes herself and then makes prints in the darkroom.  She also creates photograms and lumen prints using decaying leaves, flowers, skulls, birds – remnants and remains – placing them on photo paper and exposing them to light from an enlarger or the sun, resulting in shadow prints that glow with light.

IN HER OWN WORDS:
“Years ago when driving home, something on the sidewalk caught my eye. I pulled over and saw it was a dead Flicker, a type of woodpecker.  It had flown into a window and broken its neck. It seemed wrong to leave this beautiful bird so I picked it up with the intention of burying it in the backyard.   But then the light began to change.  I got my camera and started photographing it. I wondered, was this an odd thing to do?  But as I slowly moved in closer and closer I got absorbed in the details – its spotted breast, the architecture of its wing, its eye and the emptiness I saw there.  

“After that I began finding other dead birds, chipmunks, snakes, skulls, and bones. A bird stopped in mid-flight, a chipmunk running to cross the street – this moment in time stopped by death.  When I photograph these animals I am able to study them – their graceful bones bleached by the sun, their empty skulls, the moment of their death frozen in the shape of their bodies. I see beauty and sadness in these every day deaths and I feel connected to these animals, and as I photograph them I form a relationship with them.

“The deaths of family and friends in my life, and my struggle to understand and to grieve, are also in these photographs. My oldest brother died while riding his bike, his body flew through the air and landed on the sidewalk. Death is an ending, and it is also the beginning of an attempt to have a different relationship with this being who is gone now.

“Taking pictures for me is a way of expressing parts of myself.  I notice details and find beauty in ordinary things. When I’m taking pictures or working in the darkroom, everything else slips away and I become immersed in the process – in how to best communicate what I see and what I feel when I see it.  This process continually surprises me.“
