I’m happy to have my photograph, The Thweet Family, included in an interesting show at New Orleans’ Darkroom Gallery called  Paraphrase. All of the photographs in the show mimic or allude to famous photographs; Hugh Brown’s photograph (above), Child with Toy Chainsaw in Griffith Park, based on the Diane Arbus image is a great example. My photograph (below) paraphrases this wonderful 1953 photograph by Paul Strand called The Family.  Listen to the juror’s statement here. Sure wish I were closer to New Orleans and could make it to the show!
