Fiber Ink Studio client Amy Bedik explores the lonely places of her childhood in Boaat Press (an online journal of poetry and photography). We have been working with Amy for several years as her scanning, retouching and print house. So pleased to see this work introduced here.

Her statement:

A Lonely Place is an ongoing exploration of the places where I spent my childhood. The three locations, a suburban New York town, a rural town in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, and a neighborhood in Queens, were, in my recollection, isolated and lonely places in which to live, and I was curious to see how they had evolved over the many years I spent away. It’s been interesting to see how some things have changed — trees now dwarf houses, buildings have collapsed — but the atmosphere of melancholy and isolation has remained curiously the same. While the images are records of particular places, they are also meant to suggest the dislocation and isolation one might feel in an environment that has evolved without a central plan that takes into account human needs and desires.

More of Amy’s work can be found here.

Prints of her work can be collected in our print shop. All work printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo 290 (90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton) 280gsm (matte), with HDR inks.
