"Framing the Family Photograph"

Friday, March 05 - 9:00AM to 10:45AM
Salon F

We choose to create photographs from the material of our
family life, but refuse to keep secret what society often finds uncomfortable
to look at. Our family photographs are not nostalgic
remembrances of the past but tools for comprehension and
conceptual starting points. They explore conflict, rejection, dying,
divorce and aging and articulate experiences often missing from
the family album. Within our photography-saturated culture, we
seek to create a context that resonates between the actual and
the symbolic, that conveys the complex experience of intimate
relationships, loss, and memory, and that assists the viewer in
entering the space.
