Welcome to the Portfolio of Christopher Garvey

2017

People have a need to connect and require a social network of some kind. No matter what race, gender, or belief, we seek out those that we can relate to, and we’ve done this for centuries. It helped in our survival in our early history and continues to help us in everyday life. There have been studies that show that having a strong social connection actually strengthens our immune system and may even lengthen our lives, (Seppala, 2012). We are social creatures and desire to belong.

In my work I strive to find that connection found in images of people that have mostly been long forgotten. Building layers and removing any non-essential elements, my work, like the life of these individuals leaves traces behind as I work each piece up.
