The photo book Changing Hands by Erika Ritzel is about objects for sale, spaces they are located in, and the people the items once belonged to. These objects that loved ones once cherished are no longer useful or desirable to the family. The family members then hire a company to organize an estate sale. During the sale, the home is transformed into a store and items are staged and marketed for the customers. The items and belongings are now detached, waiting for new owners. Erika sees the personal items as substitutes for the people they once belonged to and document them before they are sold.

Join the artist, Erika Ritzel, at SooVAC on October 17th from 6-8 pm as she debuts the book to the public. Books will be for sale and signed upon request.
