It had been nearly 20 years since I had done a portrait. When all of a sudden something just clicked. In this world where things are moving so quickly it is difficult to see how we have developed any kind of lasting impression. Over time, after watching my kids on facebook, I noticed that the young people of today have created their own personal mythology, a true self-portrait. It not only included the “ideal” headshot, but also their various interests, views, complaints and triumphs. My portraits utilize the social media mythology. I include photos, personal writings and objects to create a complete narrative.
