Camilla Anne Jerome (1991) was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised on the North Shore of Boston. She recently received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography fromLesley University College of Art and Design (formerly the Art Institute of Boston). She is currently a working artist in the Boston area, while living in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Jerome’s personal work represents her inter-generational relationship to home and family and is currently working on her new project, Horse World. She has exhibited at the 2014 and 2015 Flash Forward Festival in Boston, MA and is a winner of PDN’s 2015 FACES portrait competition. Today we share her series, I am Evidence.
I am Evidence
Time has made me an outlier. One month after her forty-second birthday, my mother gave birth to me in the fall of 1991. Twenty-three years later; I am graduating from college and I watching my parents transition into elders. The sun rises earlier and sets later upon the house that encases their insular existence. The inevitable has caught me in an in-between moment of looming tension; nothing is wrong and nothing is quite right. Our skin is marked with creases, cuts, and blemishes that will heal and regenerate but the permanence of their presences rests with me, as I am evidence.
