For this series, my most recent, I created still life arrangements using objects that my parents had kept in the basement of their Paris home for decades. Many of these objects were broken, but had been stored religiously. After my father's death, the basement was to be cleaned out, but I was able to photograph these wonderful old things before they were discarded. This series is an homage to my father, and it’s also a way to make sense of the accumulation of junk--but junk that retains a great deal of history, emotion, and meaning.
