I still remember the thrill of my first Polaroid, taking pre-digital selfies and the excitement of watching a photo come to life in the developing pan. In college I studied Religion, read critical theory for fun and worked in the art library, where I spent most of my time looking through photography books. (I think I wore holes in Sally Mann's Immediate Family and Joel Myerowitz's Cape Light.)
Digital photography re-sparked my interest in making pictures. Over the last several years, and most keenly since having children, I've become increasingly interested in photography's visual vocabulary. Classes at the International Center for Photography and School for Visual Arts have helped fine tune my vision and goal: preserving something of the essentially fleeting nature of childhood.
I live in Brooklyn with my husband, two small children and two small dogs. I most definitely consider old family snapshots to be among my prize possessions.
