Photography provides a focus, a discipline of order on the world to Constance. Looking through the camera defines a specific moment and time stops. This is where Constance Keller goes to create a physical, concrete image of what is in her mind, what is remembered. Multiple exposure images, collage and materiality work together to bring forth the layered lens of memory. Keller makes photographs. The process begins by approaching everyday ornaments that surround us as subjects rather than objects. As if holding on to a knowing glance, a meeting of sorts has taken place, what lies before her becomes a story. Keller is not inventing what her eye has not witnessed but asking how does it make her feel? Almost like a poem.
