Memories of My Mother and Recent Works
My Mother was Paranoid Schizophrenic. I barely knew who she was. But I have glimpses filtered through youth and time, as a teen visiting her through the halls of Bellevue Hospital, or living with her during the early 90s in NYC hotels such as the Chelsea. This project is to recreate scenes that took place to understand who she was. It’s also about me, this kid in the world contending with my mother’s mental illness and the way a child develops a sense of identity in such a setting. This project was photographed in Nashville and Portland using staged sets to reimagine these experiences: a home, hotels, hospitals and environs that suggest institutions.
Recent works will also be displayed.
