The Marriage Oaks

Since 2011 I have been engaged in a photographic investigation of the relationship between the chaos and conflict that can exist in the adult world and the internal life of the child. My own autobiography guides this process, and informs the choices I make about the people I work with as well as decisions about how to depict them, and how to let them depict themselves.

I think a lot about growing up: how to do it well, and what happens when the parts of us that are meant to grow up don’t. How the eternal children that live within us pass things onto the children we are in charge of helping to grow up now: grief, joy, fear, isolation, anger, abandonment, pride. How we are all walking around with seven year old parts of ourselves manifesting as we trying to parent actual seven year olds, or run corporations, or uphold the law, or deliver the mail. I marvel at this every single day.

The collaborative aspects of the work are significant, and point to my interest in the grey areas between the children and me, then and now, truth and metaphor. Both the research and the experiential aspects of making the work explore the idea that the child is fundamentally “Other” to the adult, and attempt to articulate the consequences of this elemental yet universal disconnect.
