These two photos are really important to me in very strange way. The one on the left is My mother's mother and my mother. They both raised and took care of me. They are both dead. However before you start to feel bad for me, I also have a step mother who took up the task of raising & caring for me. This when my father remarried.

The photo on the right was taken during the opening of the Gordon Matta-Clark pier cut project, Day's End. I worked on the piece. Gordon was my friend. I was the around the same age as when the photos were taken of my Mom & Dad. Mother is dead as is Grandma and Gordon. The pictures represent love & loss. Perhaps all photos are really about those two qualities. Love and loss.
