A selection of photographs from “The Forest Rests Also In You” by Indianapolis-based photographer and educator Sarah Pfohl. The series is a poetic homage to her mother and her childhood country home in Hubbardsville, New York. Pfohl explains:
“I photograph my Mom in the rural place where we both grew up, where she has lived for 60 years. I photograph the country home I no longer physically inhabit in the same way that someone tries to write down a family recipe before it’s too late and to underline the most important lessons I learned through 18 years with my family home—that nothing is nothing; that the middle of nowhere is always somewhere to someone; that the absence of human presence isn’t indicative of the absence of all presence. My Mom says, ‘I like some of the pictures we made. I want them to be at my funeral.’”
