KID PICTURES

Fine Art PrintsBio

I photographed my daughter from birth until she moved away to go to college at age 18.  At first the images were casual portraits, made when the moment arose.  Gradually I realized that I was not photographing the events in her life such birthday parties, Christmas morning, baseball games.  Instead I was drawn to emotional moments, when the light was inviting, when she was sick or sad or happy or moody.  I also started early on  to photograph her friends, and the children of friends in the same manner.  Over the years I took hundreds of photographs of the kids that surrounded me with both color and black and white film.  I titled these images Kid Pictures, an irreverent sort of title, of photographs that were not about the happy days of childhood but the less recorded parts, the more painful moments.  I offer some of them here as a kind of tribute to the kids who so willingly showed me the other side of their lives and let me record them.  The Kid Pictures have been shown over the years in many different forms and three of the images are in a public art collection that hangs in a 911 Center as an example of the kind of child that they are dedicated to helping.  All of these images have now been printed digitally and are available in limited quantities.  Please inquire.
