Selective Memories

Our memories are often vague, imperfect and frequently embellished. Images, songs and smells trigger a flood of memories that are unique to each person. As a child, my family would often go on camping trips, usually to the forest or the ocean. My father enjoyed being on the road, seeing what here was to see – from him I learned that every moment had potential, every change of scenery could be interesting, every stop along the way was worthy of at least a moment’s notice. This series, like my childhood memories, is about fragments, moments glimpsed along the way, about the journey, not the destination.
