DISTANT RELATIVES (2012)
In Distant Relatives I explore the relationship between the past and present, and the place we as individuals inhabit within the greater narrative of our continuing family histories.
I have always been fascinated by old family photos. Part of that fascination lies in the alternate reality of a world inhabited by people who are close to me, but where I do not exist. This series is comprised of family members on my father’s side whose memories have cast a shadow over my family history, but who I personally have never really known.
