Four Eggs and a Hummingbird

I am interested in how family can be a means of representing oneself in terms of histories, experiences, and memories. Four Eggs and a Hummingbird challenges the notion of authenticity often attributed to family photography through images that depict truth and artifice. The images blur the line between fact and imagination, similar to how memory bends, molds, and fluctuates, complicating truthfulness. Using the dense forested region of the Pine Barrens as my foundation, I explore interior and exterior relationships between my family members and myself. Who am I as a person outside of my family unit? What burdens do I carry by keeping certain memories from my family members, and also myself?
