Teri Fullerton


Contemporary Photographers


“The subjects of these photographs are wives, mothers, siblings, cousins and friends of soldiers. They stand in as witnesses for the traces, the dust, the ash, the scent of what’s been lost and what’s been endured and what is still happening. Making images of the family members of soldiers that have served in Iraq or Afghanistan is a way to have a dialogue with a surreal experience. Ideally, the photograph can serve as a vehicle to illuminate the myriad and shared stories of loss, separation and hope.” - Teri Fullerton (statement found here)
