Disassemble, 2017

 

I remember my father’s and my grandfather’s studios, with their sets, lights and props, selected according to the photogenic qualities, personality and temperament of the person they would be portraying.  That was the glamorous world of studio photography that was the art and livelihood of three generations of my ancestors.  My own interest today is in de-constructing the image, disolve illusions, giving new meaning to the art of portrait.
