Working with hundreds of transparent images of faces I have photographed, many memories and histories pass before my eyes. When I am photographing the stream of passers-by, I feel connected to the whole world, to the sense of each of us as part of a larger whole, one human family. Although there is often an interplay of text and image, the faces themselves also function as text. The stories are there “in the eyes”. One can imagine the life behind the gaze. My work celebrates the connections between us. In both the private work and public commissions, my hope is to affirm this spirit.
