"Pictures From Home was informed by an understanding of the archive and the power that context exerts on how we read photographs. Weaving together my parents’ snapshots, film stills, business archives, and then my pictures of them was very much influenced by Evidence. The difference of course is that my own pictures figure predominately in Pictures From Home and stand in contest to the image/artifacts of my parents. But similar to Evidence the intentions of the project are to push at and extend notions of documentary practice."
