It was very easy before cell phones, the internet and social media to lose track of people, to not know how to reach them, to forget their names, their faces. People could be really important to you but if you lost touch with them they became a footnote, a "whatever happened to?" question for someone you ran into. What Shane was doing with her images, then and forever after, was marshaling against forgetting.

By photographing the experience of simply being in someone's life, she bore witness to the day to day memories that create a friendship, a family. The little moments, the big moments, the in-between. And there was so much in between. Hours on the phone, aimless driving to nowhere, endless hanging out in diners, bedrooms, kitchens, anywhere really. Boring and mundane but also beautiful and transformative.

To be seen by her was a gift. Is a gift.
