have been collaborating on photography since l978 when we began making
photographic stories about our common experiences as women. These
narratives extended into the world when we began traveling across
America, using the landscape and architecture as stage sets
for our interpretation of the human condition. In the early l990s
we returned to the domestic landscape when we each embarked on the
odyssey of family life.
As typical parents, we dutifully took photos of our children, but
soon found ourselves driven to photograph the colorful landscape of
kids culture: the toys, sticky messes and treasures littering
dressers, tables and floors. By documenting these small scenes, we
are able to capture the non-events that describe the intricate realities
of childhood (
or is that motherhood?).
