I was not a photographer by profession, an amateur at best when I started this series. Their genesis was in simple an exploration of my interest in portraiture, at times of a documentary nature, at other just a gift to give to my family. Within them I assembled and dissassembled as I was learning of what makes up a photographic image; focus, light, composition - what remained always was something so honest that it became obvious to me that nothing else mattered. 






These lessons were offered to me silently and without the need for explanation over the years. This marked the beginning of how my work continued as I furthured into a career. These boys, a catalyst reminding me where I am from, that I was once a child and am still human.
