Janet Jones

The "Wish You Were Here" series grew out of the artist's series, “Ways of Remembering” in which she layered old photographs and tintypes in various combinations, to create a visual essay on the ways in which memories and stories alter over time, and conflicting realities coexist. The series was personal, in that the photos she used were from her mother’s family, but the condition is universal.

“Wish You Were Here” allowed Jones' cast of characters to indulge in a bit of time travel, and encounter the fashions and mores of an earlier time. Some pieces took the form of 3D postcards, with faux postage stamps made from family portraits or tiny engravings, and these gave the series its name.

Most of the text and engravings are from a bound volume of “Frank Leslie’s Sunday Magazine”, published in the mid-1800’s, in which inspirational articles and poems with moral lessons are interspersed with illustrated articles on exotic places and the reports of missionaries.
