TREASURES: objects I've known all my life
This is a limited edition signed and numbered soft cover fine art book with 44 images, 96 pages. Secured in a chipboard box with embossed gold lettering held together with gold elastic. It was printed at PaperChase in Los Angeles.
The photographs in Treasures are of simple objects from Holler’s mother’s home. “My mother has always been very particular about how she likes her things - every item has its place, every task has its way of being done. Inevitably, these things and this way have become part of my life as well.” Holler is a contemporary photographer strongly influenced by stories of family, history and place.
Holler’s collection is a portrait not only of her mother, but also of their relationship. “It’s not that these things are her ‘Treasures’ per se, it’s that because she thought these things were so important to take care of, and there were so many rules around how these things were to be handled, they felt as if they were more important than me.
Treasures is a humorous look at the objects people live with, that we build our lives around, that we give breath to, and how they eventually become part of our lives - and tell our stories.
