The oldest image in the show dates back to Foote’s early adolescence, a photo of his mother lying in their Memphis backyard, shot with his first camera, at around the age of 13. The other works span the decades since then in a loose, non-narrative journey—a mixture of portraits, landscape shots, and more abstract compositions where color and light collide to create dreamlike impressions. Most of the images evoke a sense of passing moments—those instants between major events when time advances more subtly. The ethereal nature of the compositions is heightened by the prints’ fragile materiality. A double-exposed still life of flowers is obscured by a frenzied network of scratches that begin to reveal the fibers of the photographic paper, while a burn in the upper left-hand corner ruptures the surface; a waterscape is steeped in a blueish tint, a sign of decay from aging. In different ways, the same chemical processes that first created each image, were later involved in decomposing it. In a way, the alchemy of photography reflects the memories that photographs encapsulate.
