Watching The Grass Grow

Watching the Grass Grow links my experience as a new mother to that of an empty nester.  I connect time to place by weaving old photographs of my children playing on our property with recent landscapes taken from the same setting.  By combining the images, I attach my past to my present.

I photographed the landscapes in black and white to suggest timelessness; the pictures of my children were shot on film long before the birth of this project. My process has been to cull through old snapshots, looking for pictures that reflect the layered emotions of motherhood.
