I noticed my Mother
       
     
 This work looks at family history and its rituals of memory. It questions how we read our family history in photography. The photographic mask is a device, which asks questions about conventions of photography. This work takes a formal studio portrait of a child and makes it look both sinister and uncanny. The child/adult protagonist enters into an imaginary dialogue with the viewer, who is invited to look at and consider his or her own family history and photographic selves.
