Stories, 1986–88

Stories, 1986-88 puts a new spin on old histories as my 9-year-old daughter stands in for a youthful me—the one I remember and the one I wasn't quite allowed to be. Deadpan portraits in generic landscapes pair with short narrative texts in my own handwriting to create juxtapositions, dichotomies, and contrarieties, bringing the past into the present as we relive and rewrite my childhood stories through a restorative approach to both image-making and storytelling.
