About her series What’s Left Behind –
What’s Left Behind is an autobiographical narrative I began creating after my mother’s passing as a means to contemplate, unpack, and sort through her legacy–seeking to discover not only who my mother was, but also what motherhood is, and who I am now without her.
Using the past as a point of reference for navigating and giving meaning to the present, these photographs represent moments in which I am confronted by my mother’s presence and her loss, sometimes simultaneously. Some moments are deeply personal and specific, others universally relatable meant to invite the viewer in as a witness, provoking personal associations. Through my photographic practice, I render the intangible yearning I feel for lost places— both physical and emotional—to which I can no longer return, making visible what is often unseen.
About Sage Brousseau –
Sage Brousseau was born and raised in the Boston-area. Her photographs are poetic in nature and are inspired by deeply personal experiences, yet speak a universally relatable language.
Her photographic practice, which explores story, place, and identity as the foundation of personal history, was cultivated by her childhood obsession with old family photos and further developed when she pursued her BFA in Photography.
Her recent projects investigate traces of memory and contemplate emotion and loss through the lens of shared female experience.
Sage also received her M.Ed. from Lesley University where she gained a deep understanding and passion for arts education. Her work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions throughout Boston and New England for more than ten years.
