In her latest series, Amanda Boe explores the nature of her relationship with her home state of South Dakota and with her present home of California. The series, entitled “What I Hold Dear,” is ongoing.
Of her current work the artist says:
My work depicts an intersection of two worlds: looking back at a place left behind and searching for a sense of place in another. Moving through landscapes and interior spaces, a narrative began to unfold as I retraced my journey thus far. The process of photographing between California and South Dakota allowed me to address the feeling of being distanced yet emotionally attached to a place I once knew so well. What remains within me, and what I hold dear, is an innate longing for the familiar feeling of home.
