In Search of Forgiveness

Stories attached to objects are housed in our memories. I have been inviting these objects with their owners to come tell their stories. These images have included hands of the subjects and their objects. Many of the images have multiple parties as the image making spontaneity progresses during the sittings. Within the body of work I find categories and subcategories pertaining to the types of memories associated with the objects. One of my favorite categories has been the search for forgiveness.
A common format for many of the images is a long vertical panel. Most of the images use a very shallow focal plane which lends to the mystery of what is revealed. The final prints are 24" by 7-10" Platinum / Palladium on cotton rag.
