Rock Family Tree
30 photographs, each 4 x 6 inches, in handmade frames with wooden connecting network, 1998

I took portrait-style photographs of various rocks on my family's summer property in Finland, then arranged these rocks into a family tree structure. On one side, the rocks grow increasingly proximious to human presence and even turn into things like benches; on the other, the rocks grow increasingly distant, "loner rocks" who leave land behind and head out to sea.
