making pictures

Sometimes, I think I am just putting a frame around the beautiful, strange, and electric presence of people. (And sometimes I worry about getting in the way of that.)

How much is too much? Finding the right balance of contrivance and simplicity is the artistic challenge of this project. Elevating these worlds, these bodies. But also letting them be seen, simply and directly.

When do we need a fancy, invented action, and when do we need ordinary, direct presence? The alchemy of each household demands different solutions.
