George Holroyd and life’s ephemera

Through my work, I attempt to identify the ingredients that combine to make a particular place feel like home, primarily through observation of life's ephemera and taking note of the little things that stick in my mind.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, George E. Holroyd III is an autodidact. In 2009, he moved to Europe and shortly thereafter, began visually documenting his time abroad.

This early experimentation turned from casual observation to introspection, prompting a more thorough exploration of the world around him. In parallel with this, a neurological disorder he’s had since childhood grew worse, forcing him to accommodate a debilitating tremor. In 2012, Holroyd moved to Paris, France, where he began to investigate the notion of home, incorporating the use of blur in his photography for the first time.

Holroyd has participated in a number of group exhibitions in the United States and Europe. His work has been published in Shots magazine and numerous online publications. In April 2013, he was interviewed in Tremor Talk, the journal of the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF).

Through my work, I attempt to identify the ingredients that combine to make a particular place feel like home, primarily through observation of life’s ephemera and taking note of the little things that stick in my mind. It is an investigation into those elements that occasionally coalesce in a certain place or among a group of people to help instill a sense of belonging. Of particular interest to me is the durability of such memories once they’ve been formed. I consider why, once marked, certain events and details remain well preserved in our minds while others fade over time. [Official Website]

I attempt to illustrate these phenomena in my photographs—presenting images to the viewer that are consistent with my recollection.
