  • About the Image

    Family and memory have been at the core of my practice since the beginning of my relationship with the photographic medium. My broader practice relates to themes of memory, family, community, and the American condition. Whether photographing families or strangers, I am always looking for qualities of intimacy and empathy in the work.

    This photograph was made last summer during a gathering of family on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The image is of a midge swam drawn to the porch light of the house we were staying in.
