TUESDAY, JANUARY 29 AT 7PM
BY BOOTSY HOLLER
The photographs in Treasures are of simple objects from Holler's mother's home.
Treasures is a humorous look at the objects people live with, that we build our lives around, give breath to, and how they become part of our lives—and tell our stories.
"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.”

Bootsy Holler (American, b. 1969) is a contemporary photographer strongly influenced by stories of family, history and place. Whether she’s reimagining the family photo album or bringing to life stories behind specific inanimate objects, Holler’s work is driven by the powerful connection between previously untold stories, and portrayed by previously unseen points of view.
