• House Up the Street



    I chose 4 images before Christmas to work on in the New Year. I'd been pondering the idea of personal vs generic imagery and decide "Houses" would yield both. As it turned out, for me, generic photos don't really work so they sat waiting while I figured out my connection ... my angle. This one became super personal ...the house my sister lived in after leaving home. tumultuously. an hour after she turned 18. At one point I had her face large as life on the light side. Too much. Too far. The words are from a song I would sing to her, Carly Simon's "Older Sister". I feel like I'm getting closer to that line ... personal but not so much it becomes uncomfortable for someone else to own.
