My Mother

I am fascinated by the beauty and resilience, yet fragility, of life. In photographing my loved ones, in particular, my mother and my daughter, as well as myself, I investigate this coexistence. In my photographs I attempt to explore this concept by highlighting physical gesture and the weaving of tension and flow between my subjects. I am intrigued by the idea that one’s own memories and feelings may overlap from one generation to the next, and that through storytelling, personal artifacts and shared experience, a legacy is created. This collapsing of time and intertwining of life and death is a large part of the human experience. In these psychological distillations, I hope to reveal the complexities of our existence.
