A photo memoir

Under this heading, I will show photos (and a few drawings) selected because they illustrate important aspects of my life — or have generated specific memories, or have given rise to strong emotional reactions during the work.

In other words, this section of the website is my online photo memoir (photo autobiography), in which the images are the centerpiece and the texts are ‘extended captions’.

To the right is an example. More images will follow.

An example

Here is an example. For others it’s probably just an innocent portrait of a young mother with her newborn. For me, however, it illustrates my discovery, at the age of 14, that I was a ‘mistake’. It makes me wonder if my whole life has been a life-long struggle to cope with the feeling of being a mistake?
