PORTFOLIOS > Lost in Space


While reworking images of my 11 year old daughter that I shot pre-pandemic, it struck me how she and her generation of adolescents were profoundly wounded by the isolation and disconnection of the pandemic years and how this arrested development will affect them (and all of us) in the future. Not only did she lose most of her friends during the period of isolation, but my daughter is a twin whose sister died at birth, so the impact for her is compounded and magnified; a colossus of loss that leaves her ever searching for the missing. A sequel to my earlier "The Lost Years" series, these images layered with vintage astronomical illustrations tell the haunting story of our collective grief and the human longing for belonging, despite feeling light years apart from one another, marooned on distant planets; lost in space.
