About Thicker than Water
Thicker Than Water, is a series of photographs that look at the complex experience of adoption from the vantage point of the adoptee. The project uses stories that shed light on relationships in families with non-biologically related family members. The stories are paired with photographs of momentos, a baby cup, a blanket or the inscription on the back of a photograph.
The biological and non-biological relationships illuminate a larger experience by recording the details and effects of adoption on the individual, the family and on remote players in the adoption circle.
The stories are written in the first person, although only a few are mine.
