500X Gallery says
House is a solo exhibition by 500x member Lynné Bowman Cravens. The exhibition is on view January 14 - February 5, 2017, with a reception on Saturday, January 14 from 7-10 pm.

In this body of work Cravens is exploring the idea of memory and nostalgia by photographing her childhood home. She used appropriated family photographs to serve as the anchor for the series. After examining the precise locations in the house in which the original photographs were taken, she then re-photographed the same areas. The building has undergone cosmetic changes over the past several years, and has transitioned from being her family’s home to becoming a rental property. From images full of artifacts and mementos, to starkly empty spaces, the house becomes barely recognizable. This project not only focuses on Cravens' memories of the house, but also on how the recent physical changes done to the building affect perception of the space.
