WOMEN'S FACES

 

This project is a collaboration with friends, family, and strangers who are willing to stand on the other end of my lens and reveal something of themselves. 

 

I add layers of color and photos of: nature, walls of graffiti, family treasures, found objects and backgrounds from places I have visited. The layers are blended in Photoshop then flattened to create a Photo Composition resulting in a new look and new story.

 

FAMILY ALBUM REVISITED

(A Personal Project)

 

This ongoing project started during COVID when we were in isolation.  I was longing to see family again. I wanted them to be part of my life now.

 

Most were long gone.  Some I never met. I now had the time to find my Mother's old photo album from the 1920's and 30"s, study the images and remember some of the stories told. 

 

I scanned the original 2x3 photos, selected out the relative I wanted to work with, then created a Photo Composition with photographs I have taken from my current life and travels.

 

It is meant to be playful, mess with reality and time boundaries and make me smile.
