The photography component of my work is new. It is an attempt to document my daughter at play with those same items that fascinated me as a child. I capture her while she investigates the mystique and power of her burgeoning femininity. Using the camera, I am able to compose her as a drawing. Her body becomes the mass in the image that holds it all together. Her movements abstract the subject in the same way that the hair takes over the drawings. In some ways it feels like the most natural continuation of the work done in the past.
