Paige Largay

Paige Largay, a recent graduate of the MFA program at Mass Art, explores the familiar spaces from her past. The images were photographed predominately at her childhood summer home, which now lies empty and uninhabited save for these remaining relics. Largay approaches these spaces with respect to the personal significance they hold in her memory, while simultaneously alluding their unique existence outside of this familial context. The spaces she captures evoke a loneliness and nostalgia that speaks universally to the faded memories of once familiar spaces. While looking at Largay's work, I was transported back to my own childhood visits to my grandparent's summer home in Pennsylvania; flooding my mind with memories that had not been triggered in many years.
