Most of my photographic projects over the last 40 years have been sparked by, or deal with family members. I am interested in the connection between the broader cultural aspects of the image content and the personal specificity of the subjects. My photographs have been included in more than 100 exhibitions at sites including Pier 24, San Francisco, Aperture, NYC, Hallwalls, Buffalo, NY and the 5th Vienna Biennale, Austria. I have had solo exhibitions at more than a dozen venues including the International Museum of Photography and Film/George Eastman House, Rochester, NY, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, the Cultural Center, Chicago, IL. I received artist fellowships from the NEA, MN State Arts Board and the McKnight Foundation. My photographs are in the collections of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, IMP/GEH, and The Brooklyn Museum. The anthology Reframings: New American Feminist Photographies includes my work.
