Chicago-based photographer Jason Lazarus (born 1975) is known for using both traditionally developed photography as well as found and solicited images and texts in collaborative installations. Among the projects examined is Too Hard to Keep, an ongoing archive through which Lazarus preserves photographs too emotionally charged to keep yet too meaningful to destroy.
