"Today I Saw A Butterfly" by Mackenzie Maroney

*Partnering with the Alzheimer's Association*

Today I Saw A Butterfly reflects on Mackenzie's relationship with her grandmother, Rosemary, who experienced Alzheimer’s disease for 12 years. Using a compilation of photographs and mixed media, this body of work dives into the idea of memory, memory loss, and the overall connection between two people that is being revived.

“Memory, even in the rest of us, is a shifting, fading, partial thing, a net that doesn’t catch all the fish by any means and sometimes catches butterflies that don’t exist.” –Rebecca Solnit

Mackenzie Maroney is a Nashville-based photographer who moved from a small town in central Colorado to pursue her passion for art. Her work has been seen in numerous publications such as The TennesseanNashville SceneLocal Wolves MagazineEide magazineDesign Sponge and more. While focusing mainly on portraits, she strives to capture raw moments and build connections with her subjects. “My photographs are ones that tell stories, and, even more than that, create an experience. They build off of real emotions, everyday experiences, and relationships, as well as the overall simplicities and complications of life.”
