Found photographs of women in plants

FORGOTTEN PHOTOS,

other people's lives

The look and feel of found images tugs at my insides, merging with the sometimes foggy, sometimes crystal clear memories I have of my childhood in the 1960's. As I close my eyes to view my own internal snapshots and flickering home movies, they merge with the artifacts I find in musty antique stores, yard sales, and junk shops, and it seems that I was actually there in every forgotten photo, and discarded reel of film. Cradling a yellowed fragile print in my hands as my surroundings drift away, I feel the sunlight, hear the sprinklers on the lawn, and drink in the scent of warm summer dust, and dry leaves.
