Grow is a selection of photographs that serve as a meditation on the wonder and magic
of childhood. It is also a record of my personal growth as I witness the development of
my children as they approach adulthood. Like all my photographs, they reflect my
attitudes and interests outside of being representations of their subjects, so they are not
really "nice" pictures of kids. Many of them are humorous because living with children
makes the world seem funny- at least most of the time.
