that which we cannot ever expect to see is a series of poetic assemblages that consider photography's relationship to the universe. tamara suarez porras uses material collected from magazines, books, and scientific texts. With visible tears and folds, the images meditate on the impossible physical relationship to galactic bodies of unfathomable scale and at impossible distances, yet able to be held by the hand through the photographic object.

tamara suarez porras is an artist, writer, and educator from (south) Brooklyn, NY and currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. tamara explores intersections of time, memory, and autobiography through a photo-conceptual, research-based practice that utilizes vernacular archives.
