What We Leave Behind < all photos
My parents both recently passed within weeks of each other. They suffered from memory loss and dementia. Before they moved into a nursing home I made life-size cyanotype portraits of them on fabric, including items they were leaving behind. I wanted to preserve who they were and where I came from. Family Tree was created after they moved using clothing that they left behind. The series was a winner in the Tokyo International Photography Festival 2016 Competition and traveled to Singapore, NYC and Tokyo. It was also a runner up in the Alternative Photography Category for the Julia Margaret Cameron Award 2017 and will be on display in Barcelona in Fall 2017. More information on the making of these images can be found in the news section of this website under Previous Posts. Look for What We Leave Behind.....or copy and paste this into your browser.
