Portfolio > Children And Spirits - The Stories We Tell Our Children 2006-2010

All children dream of placing themselves in books, in surreal stories that are repeated from childhood, escaping into fantasy and all that it brings to the imagination. This series portrays these children’s stories in a haunting manner by including my daughter Violeta, as entering the story, with lessons to be learned. By becoming a part of their history and myth, these memories bring to the present day issues of over-consumption, entrapment, a lost connection to animals in a rural setting, as well as, a need for play, rest, and most of all fun.
