Our family relationships can be conflicting and contradictory, yet they inform and define so much of who we are. My challenge as an artist is how to envision and portray this paradox.    In my photographs, this emotional and psychological state is frequently informed by the reflections and projections that fill the space within our relationships. By incorporating surrounding windows, mirrors and, when outside, puddles of water, I establish a rhythm of the psychological complexities portrayed through non-physical space.

  I created the images of my family with an 8x10 view camera. While I prepare my camera and my subjects for the session, inevitably during this time, the unpredictability of personal dynamics allow these elusive emotions to be revealed.    I create my final prints by placing the 8x10 negative in direct contact with paper that I have hand-applied platinum/palladium coating; mats are cut to the edge of the image frame for final presentation.
