Emily and Rachel

photography:  emily and rachel

Over the span of two years, I photographed my youngest sisters, Emily and Rachel. This series is a window into their world, a document of their personalities, lifestyle, environment, and likeness over time. I was initially drawn to photographing Emily and Rachel because of the difference in the way they are growing up in an upper middle class family as opposed to how I grew up, in a lower income, fragmented family. In this body of work children are represented as intelligent, sentient, psychologically complex, contemplative, dignified, mischievous and playful individuals.
