In the early 2000s, Julie Weber was working as a photo technician for a popular retail chain when the first wave of digital printers was making its way to one-hour photo-counters across the country. REMNANTS examines the materiality of photographs at a moment when the medium transitioned from analog to digital. Weber created the imagery for REMNANTS by layering, folding, cutting and creasing material byproduct from the photo lab printer. The artist’s book is a portfolio of 12 unbound sheets: on one side, twelve individual images are presented, and on the other side, the twelve pieces can be arranged to form a single, composite image.
