Portfolio: Family 2009


As my family has been anticipating the celebration of my grandmother’s ninetieth birthday, the time seemed right to do a series of portraits of each member of the family. Obviously not all the family could be photographed: death has hit us twice in the last few years, one cousin was out of reach, and scheduling conflicts made it impossible for me to get to Birmingham to photograph another cousin and her children. Still, with twelve completed portraits (including a self-portrait), I managed to document current likenesses of two-thirds of our family.

This set of portraits served as the basis for the book I mentioned in the last post as having presented to my grandmother on her birthday. Later I’ll write more on the process of turning twelve 8x10s into a fully-fleshed family album.

The entire Family 2009 series can be seen here.
