Pictures Clarice Took
Pictures Clarice Took
Mixed book media and cyanotype

This book was created using alternative photo processes, and negatives I inherited from my grandmother's elder sister Clarice. I am fascinated by these pictures mostly because they reveal insights into my grandmother's youth through the eyes of woman who knew who as I could not. Clarice becomes an icon for the alternative identities we assume throughout our lives and draws the reader into the consideration of who family members were before they answered to titles given in adulthood.
