The work of Burke Uzzle is iconic and many images are engrained into the visual history of America including images of Martin Luther King's funeral and flower children at Woodstock. This new work, Burnt came about as a result of a chance finding. Uzzle came across a burnt out and abandoned country store. Uzzle sifted through the remaining rubble to pull texts, dolls, and other remnants that had been abandoned for a decade. The salvaged objects were put before a large format camera and documented. The power and depth of these long forgotten objects is remarkable. Photographed with care we feel a tenderness emerge in ourself, a desire to enjoy and wonder at something so long lost. Our curiosity stirs at disintegrated pages, charred toys, and ashen trinkets. Objects take on greater meaning and we begin to associate time, history, and borad narratives to the frames.
