Missing Women

In the last three images, I’ve digitally layered photographs of twenty six missing women from Vancouver, believed to be victims of convicted serial killer Robert Pickton. I am interested in the effects mass dissemination has on the meaning of an image. The work is meant to comment on and critique the over use of images, the notion of the icon, and the loss of meaning and identity through this mass dissemination of their images in groups. The identity of the actual women who lost their lives gets diluted as their images collectively begin to represent the Pickton trial over who they were as individuals.
