Foot Book

My Grandpa was an avid amateur photographer and after he retired in the 1980’s, he gave me my first Konica point-and-shoot camera. I don’t know when exactly, but I started a ritual with Grandpa of photographing our feet everywhere we went, as if to say, “We were here!" It struck a cord and continued for years, long before I was making my living as a photographer.

In thinking about an actual project that had actually legs ;) and was bigger in scope than just photos of my feet, it began to shape itself on the graphic elements of the unseen narrative. “What is the story?” ... riding the line between fact and fiction.

Paul Sills, the legendary theater director and founder of The Second City, used to say when actors were stuck in a improvised scene, “Get out of your head and feel your Feet!”
