The Persistence of Family
These images are composites of my old family photographs, photographs I took of my children, and the landscapes in which they and I grew up. Generations reach for each other across time. Though rooted in the personal, the pictures address a universal experience by which family relationships and history play a role in shaping our sense of ourselves and our understanding of our place in the world. They suggest that the present contains both the past and the future. Ultimately, this series portrays the layered process of change and becoming, and the interweaving of time, place, and identity.

It is beautifully done; the old and the new combined in one photograph. The first photo is my favourite and the change in this series is very interesting
