Family can at once be inclusive and dismissive, bonding and isolating. This work explores these extremes. The images are tableaux, freezing the moments at the edges of the more formal portrait sitting and before & after the poised expectation.
I have been photographing my immediate family in the UK and my extensive family throughout the USA for over 30 years.
I remember sitting around the dinner table, listening to tales of my family, often about people I had never met and who were now long gone. At some point in this chronicle we transition from growing up to aging—it is this shift of generations that inspires these photographs.
