Artists Statement on Reciprocity
Socorro Mucino, printmaker/photographer and Ann Kogen, photographer, first met at an art collaboration group. They combined printmaking techniques and photographic images to depict each of their stories of getting lost as children. Enthralled by a caterpillar, Socorro was inadvertently abandoned by her school group. Sent to her piano lesson alone on a bus as age 7, Ann traveled miles beyond her stop not knowing where to disembark. Both Socorro and Ann were rescued by the kindness of a stranger. Through sharing stories, ideas and techniques, they found an artistic synergy that produced these images that illustrate their stories. Were you ever lost as a child?
