Angela Casagrande says, "The series "Memory of Place" is inspired by Emily Dickinson's poem "I Noticed People Disappeared. I explore the power of memory, the space memory occupies and the artifacts we leave behind in this space both physical and immaterial. My artwork keeps fading family stories and memories alive while reconnecting with ancestors and places that may have been lost over time. 
My photography is an ongoing investigation of how our understanding and interactions with the world have been shaped by memory, in the form of ancestral history, folklore, dreams, culture, family, belief systems, and rituals."

Angela Casagrande lives and works in Sacramento, California and was a recipient of the 2015 Julia Margaret Cameron Award. She has exhibited in solo exhibitions at Axis Gallery in Sacramento, California. Her group exhibitions include The Women’s Show at South x Southeast Photogallery in Molena, Georgia and Of Memory, Bone and Myth at the Colonel Eugene Myers Gallery of Art, University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, North Dakota. Her work is in the public collection at Colonel Eugene Myers Gallery of Art. She is currently working on a series of graphoscopes for her MFA Thesis Exhibition in 2018 at Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine.

Angela’s work is derived from her memories of family lore, genealogical research and nighttime dreams. By retelling these stories visually, she presents the viewer with the unique set of symbols she has found within them. To recreate these stories, she uses a mixture of personal and appropriated images, utilizing analog and digital formats. This approach creates visually rich, layered images that bridge the past and the present.

Angela was born and raised in Humboldt County, California. She received her B.A. in Fine Art from Humboldt State University and is an MFA candidate at Maine College of Art.
