Artists constantly seek the convergence of lines or patterns, to derive a deeper meaning to what might otherwise be overlooked. Sometimes something simple and mundane jumps out with a startling impact, even if you’re not sure exactly why. Photographer Wanda Orme wants you to see her Margo Echo, her dream as potentially infinite. In Latin, Margo means “margin,” where she describes it as “the brink that looks back at us. It is the glistening horizon, grassy verge, stoney shore; that which falls away.” In the echo, we are reminded that we are borrowed, it’s something that exists and then no longer exists.
Orme’s interest in the liminal, where she describes her process as taking pictures that escape her, where she feels moments of vulnerability as she opens up a moment in time. Her organized capture makes sense of a limitless landscape, drawing your attention to her Margo Echo.
