With the ongoing series In Re-, Preston explores the physicality of the photographic medium by deconstructing and reinventing previously made photographs and other cast-off material. Occupying an ambiguous ground between abstraction and representation, the works are ultimately self-reflexive.  Their subject matter is the materiality of the medium itself: piles of negatives, stacks of rejected prints, plastic photo sleeves, framing material, and “dead” (or outdated) photographic paper. As we make our digital turn, the detritus of In Re- quietly marks the passing of the analog era.
