High School Reunion

High School Reunion

Life leads us all in many different directions. Personally and professionally, we all end up scattered across the spectrum. These photos give a glimpse into the lives of my contemporaries.

In early 2012, I began seeking out classmates from high school. Through phone calls, text messages and social media, I started to ask them if they would be willing to let me make their portrait.  The photographs were made in their homes and workplaces. When composing the images, I resisted posing or constructing scenes and instead attempted to document each individual doing what they were already doing or in the environment they were already in.

What results is a new series of “senior portraits”, giving a glimpse into the worlds of my former classmates almost 10 years since I’ve seen them last.

To me, these photos are about life. They are about the ups and downs and twists and turns and different paths we take, whether we choose that destination or whether we are thrown off somewhere we didn’t necessarily plan.
