Susan G. Komen Art for the Cure Exhibit at Neimans

Some of my work will be highlighted along with 9 other photographers at this year’s Susan G. Komen for the Cure exhibit at the Copley Neimans from October 12th through November 3rd.
The theme for the work was very broad.  We were asked to submit work about “beauty”.

 

I submitted 6 photos for the curator to pick 3.  For me beauty is found in the every day of my children.  Not at a birthday or at Christmas where everyone is expected to be happy…. but at breakfast, or brushing their hair.  The photo, “Mom’s Closet” was shot when I caught my daughter trying on my shoes, jewelery and wearing my high heels in my closet.  It was just so delightful to see her finding so much joy in wearing the same things as her Mom.  Dreaming she was older.  

“Dressing Room” was shot when I realized my daughter was growing out of her size 8 clothes and needed new clothes in a size 10.  I had a hard time thinking that she needed to be in size 10 clothes.  It was the first time that she had ever tried on clothes in a dressing room.  Usually, I just bought the clothes and brought them home.  I loved seeing her primping in the mirror, and her sister bored to death sprawled out on the floor.

The last photo, “Ophelia” was the first shot I set up with my daughter.  We were in Cannes on the Ile St. Honorat where we go to church in the summer.  There is a big castle off the island and I just loved the idea of her playing Ophelia in front of the castle… that sad story of a girl trying to be everything for her prince, afraid she wouldn’t live up to his desires.  Mentally, taking notes to make sure the girls know themselves well enough to try not to be something they are not.  But it was a nice moment with Chloe.  We had fun, and it was the first “made” picture that we did together.  I am always moved by this island in Cannes and it’s beauty which is why I submitted the photo.
