Untitled (Dot_Portraits)


‘Memorizing the achievements of individuals considered as members of families (as well as other groups) is the earliest popular use of photography.’
Susan Sontag, On Photography

This triptych of digital black and white photographs with a black dot filter, created in Photoshop by myself, shows people conforming to a family system. The family photo portraits are shaped by the black dots, and photography plays a significant role in this work because, since its origins, this medium has been a way of registering people and showing how they are constituted as family members.
