Between the Lines

Each of us can relate to the experience of people moving in and out of our lives. Friends and family members pass, relationships end, change occurs and we are left with the memories of people and places that were once central to our lives. Photographs and diaries stand in as tangible objects representing these fleeting experiences. These objects are personal and detailed, yet hopelessly incomplete at telling the whole story.

A 1954 diary that belonged to a grandfather I never met serves as the inspiration and background in many of these photographs. The figures that emerge from the pages represent the memories contained in the text. Shallow focus reveals small details, while obscuring the larger story.
