Why Bikini Waxing Nostalgic ?
"A society that has made "nostalgia" a marketable commodity on the cultural exchange quickly repudiates the suggestion that life in the past was in any important way better than life today. Having trivialized the past by equating it with outmoded styles of consumption, discarded fashions and attitudes, people today resent anyone who draws on the past in serious discussions of contemporary conditions or attempts to use the past as a standard by which to judge the present."
- Christopher Lasch
I like to wax nostalgic about the past. There is much to be learned from our collective history that we often blindly ignore, confident in our superiority in the now.
As such, our historical roots are often stripped away like a cultural bikini wax. Hundred year old buildings get torn down, classic texts are disregarded, relics are left to rot in basements and attics like museums of the dead.
My goal is to capture slices of history before they're gone; to keep snapshots of the past and retain memories of the present left unappreciated until the golden years.
