Long Rememberings of Goodbyes
Long Rememberings of Goodbye is an exploration on the nature of memory, the solace of nature, and the lasting connection of family. Using images of ice and algae partnered with poetic musings, Tramontozzi reflects on memories of her four dead brothers and considers how those memories have evolved over time.
The images of translucent ice provide a metaphorical context to consider times when perfect, fleeting moments are lost through weather and circumstance, while the accompanying text offers intimate glimpses of her relationships with Bill, Paul, Mike and Stephen. The algae images move the focus to those times one can never forget and echo the traumatic emotions caused by their premature deaths. The book celebrates the lasting connection of time, emotion, memory and life.
