The purpose of my current work is to highlight the importance of memory, and the weight it carries throughout our lives. Without memory, we have no foundation, no point of reference from which to learn and grow. The ability to retain and recall events is one of the essential elements of being human. It is what builds us into the people we are.
To demonstrate this idea, I have chosen children as subjects. Children assume no responsibilities but those they impose on themselves, and their actions are pure impulse. They respond to their surroundings in the most innocent of ways, yet their actions and reactions build the foundations for who they will become.
In the end, this series of work is an attempt to return the viewer to a time and place we all share, a time when there was nothing to do but play.
