|My work centers on home and community. What does it mean to be home, and to whom do we feel connected? |
In Building 1, I photograph my neighbors in their homes - in this large apartment rental complex in Tribeca where many of us have lived since the mid 1970's. As Tribeca gentrifies we represent the last bastion of diversity in our neighborhood.
In Second Time Around, I delight in observing my new husband Joel, as he goes about living day to day. I had been a widow since 2008, until I met Joel online. We married in 2012.
