A Louisiana Native, Tamrin received her BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus, Ohio. Currently she resides in Tucson, Arizona and is an MFA Candidate in the photography program at University of Arizona. Through means of landscape, text, and collage her work attempts to describe the difficulty of seeing. By dismantling the landscape in large format color separations or peeling back the layers of her familial history through the parafiction lens of a family curse, her work gives structure and assigns meaning to both a collective cultural memory as well as a familial memory. Paradise is a theme that runs through her work referencing both the Garden of Eden from the Old Testament and ideas of an idyllic home and perfect upbringing. Much of her work deals with familial grief, and how photographic evidence helps create a sense of continuity with the past. She is interested in the idea of house or home as family member, how a home becomes an integral, yet unrecognized member of the family and the role that the physical structure plays in the processes of loss, grief, and healing.
