  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
Angle of Repose: A Photography Exhibition by Professor Toni Pepe Dan      “It’s my dream. A world where all would be silent and each thing in its last place, under the last dust.” - Samuel Beckett, Endgame Absence and presence is a recurring theme within this series, implying that each image works to reference something beyond the frame. A variety of performative devices from theater, cinema, and literature reconstruct visions and moments experienced within the walls of the character’s mind. References to memory are embedded in her gestures and body language. Though the poses are appropriated from family photographs, at the same time they evoke the classical and art historical. Recurring motifs such as dust suggest the past, calling to mind the idea of remains and decay.
