In this series, "Love Hurts", I've combined two of my passions into one - past and present, black and white and colour, film and digital images. I've incorporated the present, which is an ongoing project entitled "Caught in a Moment" (20yrs+ of self-portraiture in various characters, situations and locations). With this project I am the photographer, model, set designer, costume coordinator, lighting director, make up artist, post production executor, etc. I've paired this 20+ years project w/ my large collection of antique photos and negatives (dating 1880s to 1960s). I've assembled this photographic collection over decades of auction attendances, where I rescued unknown family histories from destruction. These images have been sleeping in boxes until the concept of "Love Hurts" came to me. This became a way to create stories which evolved from the past and could be intertwined w/ the present, giving the images a timeless quality with no defined era. It confronts the emotional pain caused by love and the often irrational decisions that fallow. Love hurts!
