like an undecided wave, the Transitions Series


The  transitions series is all about the middle years. when they are neither children nor grown ups.

There are so many elements in this photo that speak to this period:  the cast-over skies; the sense of of being a lone castaway undergoing a transition that no one has ever undergone before and no one could possibly understand; an unclear dividing line between what is and the unknown, the "what will be" that is yet to be determined, that line between child and adult that  keeps moving  back and forth like an undecided  waves.

Time is transforming my child. It is stretching his limbs as much as  his mind. 
He slowly morphs into an entirely new beast right before my eyes...

dream of turtles, October family self portrait



The family self portrait  project started in January 2011. 
I take one portrait of the whole family, myself included, once a month.  
In late 2013 a "ghost" writer joined the initiative and now each photo is accompanied by a poem.
In 2015 the kids started collaborating and introducing their own ideas
...the project has a life of its own

also,
Every family should do this. It's an amazing record of the little things that matter
