This Picture is for Shai Purchase a print of this image
The portraitist attempts to create mementos, family heirlooms left like a trail of breadcrumbs in the forest for future generations. Mechanisms for conjuring the absent. Metaphors mixed in black and white, color, magnetic photo albums, aluminum frames.

I have a treasure hidden in a box of pictures. It's little Lloyd, caught radiating the pure joy of four, sitting on a pony. I even remember the very summer day, when the poor creature ambled up the street in front of our house. On a whim my mother decided to have a picture done by an itinerant portraitist. I was hoisted up onto his quadrupedal prop, he did something to make me laugh, and wham - something to hold for the rest of my life. I wonder if it wasn't that event that set me on my path?

So this picture is for Shai.
