In Far From Home, the Book of Remembrance, Myong-Ah Rawitscher uses several images at once, combined within a single frame, to create a poetic space. Each piece is conceived of as a poem or an essay on personal memories, or the experiences of daily life in the present. The work reflects both her own “Far From Home” experience and the experiences of others who have told her their stories.
Myong-Ah was born in a Year of the Sheep and grew up in Seoul, Korea. She attended Yon Sei University and after graduating traveled to the US to pursue her interest in photography. She received an MFA degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York and currently makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area.
