Description

First act of a family saga, introducing actors and the possible story, by integrating vintage portraits into a recent photo of a room in a historical European house.

I produce montages using old photographs that I have bought or borrowed. Blending early Twentieth Century portraits with contemporary images suggests intimate moments in time and place that may have occurred. While a picture of an individual may tell one story, I invent another context for each scenario, revealing possible histories influencing the present. Viewers are invited to blend their own remembrances with the illusions I have presented.
