As my son was growing up and I matured as an artist, I photographed him often. He is my only child and for many years I was a single mother. He was always hyper-masculine and we have often been at odds. Both of these diptychs were emotional extensions of my attempts to understand men and their actions. At the beginning of this year, I put thses together and began to show them. In the spring my son joined the Army and will most likely be sent to Iraq or Afghanistan soon. We are reconciled by the distance.
