Short Stories

I am pretty fascinated by things both spiritual and physical that people cling to in order to find and define identity. When I began my “Short Stories” series I was thinking a lot about how as families and communities, we create shared folklore to memorialize people, places and events. As individuals, we create personal mythologies to help us contextualize our past and imagine our future. I was also thinking about how we order ourselves to find identity and how we get ordered and labeled by others. These pieces are based on images that I have collected over time. They are sorority sisters, all of the presidents and vice presidents and mug shots from 1905 – 2010.
