Beate Sass, a self-taught artist based in Decatur, became fearful that her memories of her parents would fade to mere shadows after they were gone. For the last five years, Sass has collaborated with her father to photograph moments in his daily routine during her visits to New Mexico, her childhood home. The colors of the desert, the mountains, and the light of the Southwest are all intertwined with her feelings for her father. Her project led to the solo-exhibition, Beate Sass: A Good Life, which will open with a reception on August 17th in the Ted and Gloria Maloof Gallery at APG. Esther Griffin talked to Sass about this very personal project.
