I began photographing with the Holga camera shortly after my daughter was born. As a busy mom with a newborn and a two year old, it was especially challenging finding time to make art. What I could do, however, was plan to take at least one photograph a day. The moments I shot were not planned ahead of time – but a visual diary of my day-to-day life with young children – at the playground, town pool and birthday parties.
Modifying the frame on the Holga camera to eliminate frame breaks allowed me to create overlapping images. Soon one image telling a story became two, which when juxtaposed, tells a larger story of a specific time and place. Usually these moments would occur within seconds or minutes of each other. Overlapping images also mimic how these fleeting experiences morph into one another – reflecting how, with kids, one instance can change so rapidly to the next.
