I made this photo many months ago, when my feelings about having to break up my family and learning to be a single parent were much more raw than they are now. It has been a full year this April that I've been on my own, after a devastating eight year relationship. Becoming a single parent was frightening, but I eventually I found that I could manage well, partly by searching out other single parents and hearing their stories. I'm happy to say that this anniversary finds me really enjoying my new life, and celebrating my freedom.


  1. Rebecca, so glad I found your blog. I love seeing the work that you and other young, talented photographers are doing (following various links on your blog). The image above is so evocative. I've a camera in my hands off and on for over 50 years, six of those years with serious intent and mine work is pretty straight forward. You and your friends give me faith in the future of photography as an art form.

  2. Ann, That is such a great compliment. Thanks so much
