Reunion (you're just as I remember you)

This piece, and others using mousetraps, explore how individuals are typecast and trapped within a former identity. By juxtaposing high school yearbook portraits with prejudices and stereotypes, I explore how personal or social interpretations remain powerful factors in how we remember others. Although years go by, we survive as memories through a photograph and label weve outgrown.
